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 led by a Board of Directors and Festival Director Nick Ferrio. It's a primarily volunteer-run organization, and as such, we're always looking for volunteers. If you're interested in volunteering, please sign up to volunteer here.
