Awards

We are proud to be a part of an incredible community that includes volunteers and artists.

They are truly the backbone of Folk Fest and set the stage for the Festival to be the beautiful celebration of people and music it is. To be able to recognize iconic artists with the Artistic Achievement Award and devoted volunteers with the Glass Banjo is a tremendous honour for us.
