get involved

Attend, sell crafts or food, become a sponsor or donate to the cause....

There are numerous ways to get involved with our festival - you can simply attend and enjoy the music, or you can take a more active role by volunteering, by becoming a vendor and selling crafts or food. Another way to feel involved and ensure the continued success of our festival is to become a festival sponsor or support the festival with a donation to our endowment fund.


Folks who love great roots (folk, Celtic, bluegrass, blues, gospel, singer-songwriter etc.) music come from everywhere to attend the Edmonton Folk Music Festival. It is the largest folk music festival in North America and is rated by performers and music writers as among the top three festivals of its kind in the world!

Tickets go on sale each year on the first Saturday in June. Information about how to get tickets will be here. There are only 10,000 4-day passes available plus 1000 tickets each day. Four-day passes often sell out, so if you want to attend, plan on buying your passes and tickets on ticket sales day to avoid disappointment.
