Guest For A Day

The Winnipeg Folk Festival is a four-day adventure in music and discovery that happens every July in Manitoba’s Bird’s Hill Provincial Park.

2017 Guest for a Day Applications are Now closed. 

Each year, we invite nonprofit community groups to be part of our Guest for a Day (GFAD) program.
 
This program is designed for people who may not otherwise be able to attend the festival, to come and experience the wonderful music, food and community. We give complimentary tickets to 30 community groups so they can take in the festival's sights, sounds and tastes!
 
We always strive to support a variety of groups however, preference will be given to groups that have not participated before.
