Food Vendors

Calgary Folk Music Festival plays host to over 12,000 hungry patrons, volunteers, and others during our four-day festival. To keep these fine folks energized, we engage over 25 unique food vendors from Calgary and beyond.

Food vendor applications for the 2022 Calgary Folk Music Festival are now open until April 4, 2022.

Standards And Selection

Every year we get more applications than we can place, so we choose vendors based on the following criteria:

  • Variety and quality of food
  • Price point and affordability
  • Commitment to our eco initiatives
  • Adaptability to different dietary restrictions (vegan/gluten free/halal etc.)

The Festival provides space for you to operate, electrical, and water/grey water hook ups. Vendors are required to provide flooring, a sump pump, hand wash sinks, fresh/grey water hose, extension cords, lighting, tent and all other equipment.

Vendors are required to comply with all health and building code regulations, and provide proof of insurance. The festival is a no-waste event and requires vendors to participate in composting, recycling and other green programs. All cupware, plateware, cutlery and etc. must be certified compostable and approved by the festival before use.

 

Fees And Services

Please be advised that because the festival takes place on an island, space and electricity are extremely limited. Priority is given to vendors with small footprint and low power consumption. The fees for 2022 will scale depending on size and power draw.

Example: a standard 20ft food vendor space with 30 amps of electricity would be $3,622.50.

Food vendor applications are now closed.

 

Please email vendors@calgaryfolkfest.com with any questions.

Arts Market

Calgary Folk Music Festival's Arts Market is a unique hub of creativity, craftsmanship and community, and we are inviting artisans to apply to be a part of the experience! Over 12,000 people come through the festival site each day, creating a buzzing marketplace environment, and making it one of the most heavily trafficked artisan markets in the city with over 25 unique artisan vendors from Calgary and beyond.

Arts market applications for the 2022 Calgary Folk Music Festival are now open until April 15, 2022.

Standards and Selection

Along with your application, we are looking for professionally presented samples that best represent your art. All samples will be a part of an adjudication, with attention paid to the following standards: quality of work, aesthetic appeal, price range, overall variety of submissions and genre of art or service. Priority will be given to artists and artisans who curate and create their own handcrafted items. The Calgary Folk Music Festival assumes no responsibility for lost or damaged samples.

 To apply, fill out the application form. Please note that we are not accepting physical samples this year. Please include multiple images of your items that best represent your offerings in the application form. We will evaluate applications with attention paid to the following standards: quality of work, aesthetic appeal, price range, overall variety of submissions and genre of art or service. Priority will be given to artists and artisans who curate and create their own handcrafted items.

Application deadline extended to April 18, 2022.
