COVID-19 response

The Folk Festival Society of Calgary’s staff and board are watching the COVID-19 situation very closely. As we receive new information, we will continue to update this post.

**Updated March 17, 2020**

Spring concerts

Due to the unprecedented circumstances surrounding COVID-19 and ban on public gatherings, we have updates on our upcoming concerts. The safety and health of our patrons are of the utmost importance, with this in mind, and to contain the spread of COVID-19:

  • Gabrielle Papillion — CANCELLED
  • The Bros. Landreth — POSTPONED (new date TBC)
  • Basia Bulat — POSTPONED (new date TBC)

We encourage compliance with public health advisories to keep yourself and your neighbours healthy and practice social distancing if you are able.

Calgary Folk Music Festival

The Folk Festival Society of Calgary’s staff and board are watching the COVID-19 situation very closely. Given that our summer festival is just over four months away, we are cautiously optimistic that everything will proceed as usual and we are continuing in full on planning mode.

In the meantime, we are following the Public Health Agency of Canada’s mass gathering risk assessment protocol. We are being vigilant, and we are communicating with our colleagues, stakeholders and the City of Calgary. We are, of course, committed to the health and safety of everyone — our audiences, volunteers, staff and artists — and we hope to see you this July.

If you have any questions or concerns related to COVID-19, please contact us.
