Have a Ball in the Festival Campground!

Have a Ball in the Festival Campground!

Get ready to have some crazy-fun in the Festival Campground this July! We have animators who will be hosting exciting games for all ages to try their hand at.

What could be more fun than a few frames of Folk Fest Glow Bowling? The lane and pins are painted with colourful glow paint and decorated with EL wire for an ethereal nighttime bowling experience. During the day, the lane is available with smaller pins and balls for li’l campers to take a turn.

Taking your favourite tabletop games and making them larger-than-life, the creators of Big Games will return to the Festival Campground. Challenge your friends to a game of Big Battleship, create the tallest tower with Big Jenga, be the first to sequence with Big Connect Four and so much more.

Who says you have to grow up? Some of the best memories of elementary school gym class were romping around under a giant parachute with classmates. Relive that carefree, childlike feeling with your Folk Fest friends in the campground with Connect! Collaborate! Play! A group of animators will be hosting games with a great, colourful parachute to play with.

Interactive art meets mini-golf! The Spectral Vision is a 7 by 12-foot structure will allow campers to create their own paths to golf on. Interested to see how the will look? So are we! It will no doubt delight and amuse all who attempt a putt.
