NL Folk Fest returns on July 7 – 9, 2023!

We’re so excited to welcome everyone back into the park for the 47th Annual NL Folk Festival, presented by Equinor!  Please join us this coming July 7th, 8th, and 9th for music, crafts, and that sweet summer air in Bannerman Park! Watch our social media and newsletter to hear about “Everything that’s old is new again.” We’ve reached into the bag to bring back some of our favourite Festival traditions from the past and are adding new ones to celebrate our province.
