Experience tradition and discovery at the Vancouver Folk Fest

  • May 28, 2024

The Vancouver Folk Festival is a beloved institution here in Vancouver, and for good reason. Every year the folk fest transforms Jericho Park into a three-day musical extravaganza, featuring some of the most talented musicians in the world in a very laid back atmosphere.


Many music festivals are fun, but kind of grueling, as too many people press against each other in the hot sun. The Vancouver folk fest is actually rejuvenating! Shows happen at various stages throughout the day, and the natural beauty of Vancouver’s Point Grey means there’s plenty of room to stretch out your legs and enjoy the sun. Even better, water bottle filling stations are throughout the park and are absolutely free.

Another thing folk festivals have over other music fests are “workshops.” If you’ve never been to a folk fest, what this means is that various bands and solo performers all take the same stage and take turns leading everybody – anyone who can play along does! It’s a truly unique form of performance that results in incredible combinations of music you will never hear anywhere else, or ever again. Folk Fest is a one of a kind experience and a must-see for music lovers.


This year’s main stage headliners include Moontricks, Leif Vollebekk, Iris DeMent and The Wood Brothers amongst many, many more.  If you don’t recognize anybody in this lineup, don’t worry: the Vancouver Folk Festival is about discovery more than just seeing people you know already. Trust us when we say that the level of musical talent on display will blow your mind.


Of course, the fact that the Folk Fest takes place within Vancouver means you don’t have to sacrifice incredible comfort to see some great music. Book a stay at Grand Park Hotel Vancouver Airport discover the city for yourself.
