The 2020 Winnipeg Folk Festival has been Cancelled.

We’re absolutely heartbroken to announce that due to the COVID-19 situation, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel the 47th edition of the Winnipeg Folk Festival scheduled for July 9 to 12, 2020.

Our Refund Request Form closed on Friday, May 15. If you did not meet this deadline do not worry the Refund Request Form was designed to provide those who wished to donate their tickets the option to do so. Since deadline has passed we will assume all unfulfilled orders are refunds. As a result, you can expect a full refund to appear on the original card of purchase within 30 days.

We appreciate your patience and support as this process takes time and our staff is working hard to make sure everybody receives their refund or charitable tax receipt. If you have any other questions, please contact us by email at

We look forward to seeing you in July 2021!

Arts organizations are being devastated by this crisis and the Folk Festival is no exception. While there won’t be a festival this year, your help is still critical. If you still wish to make a donation, we invite you to please make a gift.
