INFO FOR TICKET BUYERS – FESTIVAL 2022
Weekend Passes and Day Passes are on sale NOW!
The Vancouver Folk Music Festival will be going cashless for this year's festival!*
*Independent vendors may still accept cash.
New this year is a change in our ticketing process. Moving forward, instead of using deadlines, we are moving to a supply-based tiered structure. Once Tier 1 tickets are gone, Tier 2 prices take effect, so be sure to act fast to save!
The Vancouver Folk Music Festival will no longer require proof of vaccination for audience members to attend the 2022 Festival.
This decision was made after carefully considering feedback from our community, the size of the outdoor space, changes in public health orders, and to be consistent with industry standards at live events in the province and across the country. We thank you for your understanding and for continuing to support the Festival, and our commitment to the community!
Elders are 65+

Performers have a busy summer of touring ahead and we need to give them the best opportunity to be able to perform at our Festival and on the rest of their tours. To this end we will be following contagious disease prevention protocols, and in specific areas of the Festival, staff, crew, and volunteers will need to wear masks and provide proof of vaccination. We also want to look after our team and ensure the sustainability of the Festival.
We all look forward to these three days in July, so of course it’s important to stay safe and look out for each other. We want your Folk Fest experience to be as wonderful as you’ve been imagining all year!
