Tickets for the 37th Winnipeg Folk Festival go on sale today at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. The festival will once again be five days, opening with a “marquee” act on Wednesday, July 7 and running through Sunday, July 11 at Birds Hill Park.
The annual event is introducing an audience cap this year for the time ever at 14,000 people daily. “As our attendance has grown, we have continually made improvements to accommodate more Winnipeg Folk Festival devotees, but we are now near our maximum capacity. Until there are major changes to our site, we’ve decided to limit attendance to preserve the audience experience,” said Tamara Kater, Winnipeg Folk Festival Executive Director in a news release.
Campground passes will no longer be available individually and must be purchased in a bundle with festival passes.
Tickets are also available at the Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store, 211 Bannatyne Avenue.
