AUGUST 17 - 19, 2018


The Peterborough Folk Festival happens August 18 19, 20, 2018   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 Festival is FREE but donations are greatly appreciated and encouraged so we can continue to put on a great weekend of music and arts . 

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  completing  the form on our volunteer page.
