Art and Animation in the Festival Campground

Art and Animation in the Festival Campground

It’s no secret that the Festival Campground is magical place. For five days every July, thousands of us gather in that big, green field in Birds Hill Park to connect with each other, create and dance to music, and commune with nature.

Campers have a tendency to get really creative – and it’s a joy for all to see and experience! Ingenious games are played, interactive structures built, music made and inventive projects imagined by campers who want to contribute to the community and share their creations and ideas with their fellow folk. The Festival Campground is a beautiful incubator for sharing and expression.

We love to see campers get creative with their campsites and host games and activities. Some folks may require support for their idea, which we are happy to offer! We have resources to support a selection of projects. 

Have a cool idea? Even if you just want your project to be promoted on our website, social media, enewsletters and the campground newspaper – apply! We’ll get you featured so campers know to stop by and join the fun.

Last year was a ton of fun in the campground. Let’s take a trip down memory lane with a few projects that were part of the Art and Animation Program!

The first time you hear someone yell “Happy Folk Fest!” followed by a roar of cheers that rolls across the campground, you’ll feel right at home.
