The list of artists whose careers broke out after appearing on one of the workshop stages at Jericho Beach is too long to print. This year will just add more names to the list.” – Stuart Derdeyn, Vancouver Sun


Thank you, Vancouver!

For the 22nd annual Georgia Straight "Best of Vancouver 2017" you voted us "Best Local Music Festival" for the 6th year in a row. We are supported by an amazing community of folks without whom the festival would not be able to happen. To everyone who participated, volunteered, performed, attended – and voted – for the VFMF, you are "The Best."

Vancouver Folk Music Festival is the BEST FESTIVAL in the City!

In a “who’s the best” poll seeking the Stars of Vancouver, the VFMF is truly honoured to again receive this very special #1 award.

Thank you to everyone who made this happen!
