Great Canadian Giving Challenge


We’re sure you share our joy in hearing the news that we all are a step closer to being together again – the light at the end of the tunnel is finally shining bright! We are cautiously optimistic and encourage everyone to heed the health orders so by July 1st, we’ll be at Phase 3 of reopening.

This year, our Festival will go ahead as planned in digital format. But, we are SO excited that all signs are pointing to us having a live Festival again in 2022!

As a Registered Canadian Charity, our live Festival is our primary source of income - both through ticket sales and fundraising. The pandemic threatens the existence of our Festival, and because of support from people like YOU, we are still standing. Donations from folks like YOU ensure our Festival happens year after year! And TODAY is a great day to donate.

Our goal is to raise $2500 in June via CanadaHelps for 2500 entries for VFMF to win $20,000 through the Great Canadian Giving Challenge!

DONATE TODAY. Help us raise $2500 in the month of June (and maybe, win $20,000 more!)

The Festival counts on YOU to keep the music playing. 

Thank you for your support!

Why donate TODAY?

Every $1 you donate to Vancouver Folk Music Festival from TODAY until June 30 via CanadaHelps counts as one entry for the Festival to win $20,000 through the Great Canadian Giving Challenge - and the draw for the grand prize will happen July 1st!
