Be a part of the festival!

The Canmore Folk Music Festival welcomes artisans and fair trade retailers to our vendor village each year. We offer a vast array of handmade and fair trade goods to purchase from jewelry, musical instruments, clothing and art. We welcome 5,000 patrons per day plus artists, guests and volunteers.

We also invite organizations in the Bow Valley to have Community Booths on site to spread awareness about what services they offer to the community!

As well as the vendor village the Canmore Folk Music Festival also has a food boardwalk filled with unique vendors from the region. We host a variety of food vendors, offering cuisine from around the world!

Our vendors are selected from over 100 applicants and judged on a variety of factors, such as quality and originality, price, artistic talent, booth displays and the environmental sustainability of their goods. Previous participation in the Canmore Folk Festival does not guarantee acceptance the following year.
