New Year, New Artwork! Tickets on Sale NOW!

We’re so excited to announce that the pre-sale for the 2017 Winnipeg Folk Festival are on sale NOW! We also have 2017 merchandise available, we hope you love it as much as we do!

We are all patiently waiting for those beautiful summer days spent laying in the grass, tapping our toes and those long warm nights dancing, singing and spending time with friends, old and new.

We’re so excited to say that we are only 220 days away and pre-sale starts TODAY! This pre-sale is extra special because you could be walking out of our office with your ticket and some 2017 Winnipeg Folk Fest merchandise!

We were fortunate enough to work with the very talented Brian Steely on our artwork for the 2017 Winnipeg Folk Fest. Brian is a designer based in Atlanta and is known for his simple, yet intricate line designs. He has done creative work for Mumford and Sons, The Decemberists, Bonnaroo and many more!

“I worked closely with Chris Frayer to come up with some elements that we both thought would work well together,” Brian said. They picked some of the most important Folk Festival elements to highlight in the artwork. “The banjo, obviously for the folk music, rising up as a sun or moon with the northern lights in the background and tents in the foreground. With natural elements all around. We wanted the piece to really evoke the feeling of being at the festival.”

We are grateful that Brian created such a beautiful piece of work and that he wanted to work on something that is such a big part of our festival. We asked him what he enjoyed most about working on this piece and we think he liked working with us. “Working with the crew at the Winnipeg Folk Festival - it's clear that they love the festival deeply and working with them really brought out my best. It's really awesome when everything comes together and to know that you've made your client happy with the work - that means more to me than anything else,” he said. We worked well as a team to create a folky finished product. “You could tell they cared what I thought and were really into what I was doing - THAT always makes for a better finished product.”

We hope you love this wonderful piece of art as much as we do! Make sure to pick up your tickets AND merchandise, available online at winnipegfolkfestival.com or at the Winnipeg Folk Festival offices (203-211 Bannatyne Avenue), our office hours are Monday to Friday, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
