About

People sit and watch the festival at night

Welcome to Calgary Folk Fest! We are a non-profit charitable organization that produces music and cultural events all year: a summer festival, Calgary Folk Music Festival since 1980; a winter festival, Block Heater since 2016; educational programming, such as our annual Boot Camp; and concerts at our own venue, Festival Hall in Inglewood, as well as partner venues across Calgary.

Folk Festival Society of Calgary

The Folk Festival Society (FFSC) is a year-round, charitable arts organization that promotes community engagement and city building through the presentation of live musical programming spanning genres from local, national and international artists. The FFSC has grown from its primary event, the Calgary Folk Music Festival, to include: ownership and operation of Festival Hall; producing a year-round concert series; and Block Heater, a multi-venue winter music festival. The Society’s vision and mission are to enhance our community’s quality of life through the celebration of music from diverse cultural traditions, and to creatively engage audiences and artists in live music experiences through unique approaches. The FFSC is run by thirteen staff, twelve board members and is powered by 1,850 volunteers.
