CityFolk Festival 2016 Lineup

CityFolk, the rebranded CKCU Ottawa Folk Festival is back at Landsdowne Park from September 15 to 18 for four days of music, dance, storytelling, and crafts. Vendors will also be seeing local draft beer, commemorative merchandise and more.

General admission festival passes are $123.17 and available online are at the CityFolk box office, located adjacent to the TD Place box office on Exhibition Way. If the price is too steep, there are free events going on as well, as part of Marvest — an offshoot of CityFolk that collaborates with local businesses to spotlight Ottawa talent in unconventional venues.

Boasting a new name and venue, the festival highlights Canada’s rich traditions with music, dance, storytelling and crafts. Side-stage shows are a particular highlight as musicians share the spotlight.
