Folk Festival Society of Calgary

The Calgary Folk Music Festival was founded in 1980 and is produced by the not-for-profit Folk Festival Society of Calgary.

Held at Calgary’s bucolic Prince’s Island Park since its inception, it’s one of Canada’s flagship, trailblazing music festivals with a national and international profile and a broad, cutting-edge programming vision.

The society also presents music, art, and cultural performances year-round, including its own fall and spring concert series and the annual winter music festival, Block Heater.
