The Hill at Home

Welcome

Welcome to The Hill at Home! Although we can’t be together at Gallagher Park this year at festival time, we look forward to keeping the folk fest vibe alive by bringing some festival favourites home to you!

From August 6 - 8, we hope you'll join us weekend of music, song, food, and art at home.

The Edmonton Folk Music Festival respectfully acknowledges that the land on which we gather is situated on Treaty Six Territory. For thousands of years, the Edmonton river valley has been a Pehonan, a traditional meeting and gathering place for Indigenous Peoples. We honour and respect the history, languages, ceremonies and culture of the First Nations, Métis, Inuit and Non-Status Aboriginal Peoples whose presence and culture enrich our vibrant community. We are all beneficiaries of this longtime Indigenous philosophy of peaceful cohabitation, between the earth, the animals, and all humans. We all have a responsibility to one another and this land.

Please stay safe and follow Alberta Health Guidelines for gatherings if you’re getting together with friends for The Hill at Home.  Current guidelines can be found here

SING.


Four Strong Winds Finale

Let's come together in spirit and song to sing
Four Strong Winds with Jim Cuddy on Sunday August 8.

Be a part of this year's finale by submitting your own video.

Deadline to submit is July 23.
Click here for instructions.

Every year at festival time, we wrap up an incredible 4 days of music and community by singing Ian Tyson's Four Strong Winds together on the hill at Gallagher Park, filled with memories to carry us through to the next festival.

We can't wait to sing with you again.

"It was an honour to be asked to lead the final song for Folk Fest. I watched Mary Chapin Carpenter's version for guidance. I had to raise the key a notch! I have always loved the song. Such a conflicted narrator. Hard to imagine it was his first song. I can't wait to see the finished product with everyone singing. It's a beautiful thing to sing together in these strange times." - Jim Cuddy

Recipes from the Festival Kitchen

Dear Folk Fest family and friends

In the absence of this year’s Folk Festival, the Festival Kitchen has lovingly compiled menu ideas based on past recipes. These recipes are among my personal favourites and those that have been requested by volunteers and festival guests. One quality that they have in common is the simplicity of the steps. This way, you can recreate some of the Festival Kitchen favourites while at home.

Throughout the weekend, our Festival Kitchen volunteers prepare these dishes in large quantity; some of these recipes have been served to 2500-3000 folks! As always, most of the ingredients are not only affordable, and in season but also locally sourced so they can feed the hearts of our festival. With this in mind, we have adjusted these recipes for your family and friends gathering.

Please feel free to contact us by email kitchen@edmontonfolkfest.org if you have questions or would like to request a recipe not included in this small collection.

Happy cooking and bon appétit!

Stephane Levesque, Festival Kitchen Manager

THANK YOU.

We can't wait to see you on the hill August 4-7, 2022
