The Hill at Home

My Heart Is On The Hill 2020 logo


Welcome to The Hill at Home! Although we couldn’t be together this year at festival time, our hearts were on the hill together.

On August 7 - 9, we enjoyed a weekend of music, song, food, art, and family fun at home.

Links and programming are still available to help keep the folk fest vibe alive!

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.

The Edmonton Folk Music Festival Society endeavours to provide a culture of safe space for all, including marginalized and vulnerable segments of our population. It aspires to put on a leading folk music festival while embracing a vision of inclusivity. The EFMFS will nurture safer spaces where all people regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, race, ethnicity, religious belief, ability, colour, or other personal characteristics should feel safe, welcome and valued.

The Hill has a special meaning to all who've taken in the view. Friendships have been made, laughs shared, and children who grew up walking the grounds are now bringing babes of their own. The Edmonton Folk Music Festival is grateful to this loyal community that has called The Hill home for the past 40 years.

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 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 to our sponsors for continued support.
