Activities for All in the Festival Campground

Activities for All in the Festival Campground

The first group of Art & Animation Projects announced! More to come…

Hello, folkies! Campers have some great things planned for the Festival Campground this summer. All month, we will be rolling out the exciting things to do, see and be enchanted by this summer in the campground. We have some brand new creations to look forward to along with some old favourites.

Our first projects are all about being active in the campground, whether it be playing big games with friends or having a big ol’ stretch to get your day started out right.

Bring back the fun days of childhood with a colourful parachute! ‘Chute for the Stars will have scheduled and spontaneous sessions for games that you can join. In addition to the rainbow parachute, they will have beach balls, rubber chickens and you’re guaranteed to have lots of laughs!

Are you tough enough to take on the Folk Fest High Striker? The Folk Fest High Striker will be set up in the campground for you to take a whack at. When you strike the pad hard enough the striker will soar! This interactive installation is great to play at night in all its glow-y glory.

The Big Games crew are BACK and ready to play with new games in tow. Test your skill when you follow the Roaming Gaming Caravan for carnival fun. See how good you are at Skee Ball, Tilt-a-Maze, Ring Toss and more! AND the big games will be returning too. We’ve got giant Jenga, Connect Four and Scrabble returning this year!


Yoga Fun for Everyone

Stretch it out with fellow folkie yogis at Pope’s Hill. Get your body moving and limber for long days and nights spent dancing at the festival to your favourite bands. No experience is necessary and all are welcome to join in the fun.

Stay tuned for more art and animation project announcements next week!
