The Peterborough Folk Festival happens August 21, 22, 23, 2015.   It’s a three-day music and art festival in the heart of the beautiful city of Peterborough, Ontario. With lots of music, workshops, food and craft vendors, we’re certain that you’ll love our festival as much as we do! The Peterborough Folk Festival’s mandate is to foster the artistic and professional development of local culture. We encourage local artists to apply to Emerging Artist Program and to apply as performers.

The Peterborough Folk Festival is primarily a volunteer run organization led by a board of directors, and as such we’re always looking for volunteers. If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact the festival by emailing   pffchair@gmail.com or complete the form on our volunteer page.

Artisan Village Info

The Peterborough Folk Festival is pleased to showcase the creations of 30+ talented artists and crafts people. Be sure to take a stroll through the artisan village, speak with the vendors and see their handmade goods up close.  We pride ourselves on bringing together a diverse selection of locally-made items,  and we are sure you will find something special to take home as a memory of a great day of music, art and community.

The Artisans Market will take place on Saturday Aug 22 , 12- 7 and Sunday Aug 23rd, 12-6 at Nicholls Oval.
