This year’s Vancouver Folk Music Festival has been rescheduled in response to the COVID-19 crisis. The 43rd annual event was scheduled to take place from July 17th to 19th at Jericho Beach Park.

Referring to the announcement as a rescheduling rather than a cancellation, the 43rd annual festival will now take place on July 16th to 18th, 2021.

Dr. Bonnie Henry’s announcement this past weekend that large public gatherings aren’t feasible for this summer did not come as a surprise. The safety of our community, staff, contractors, artists, volunteers, vendors, sponsors, suppliers, patrons and festival supporters is of utmost importance. We know this is the responsible decision for everyone’s health.

We take comfort in the thoughts of being back at the beach with all of you in 2021. At this time, the 43rd annual VFMF has been rescheduled to July 16-17-18, 2021.

If you are a ticket-buyer, do not call our office as the festival organizers will be in touch with you directly via email regarding ticketing options. Donating the ticket cost, rollover to 2021 or refunds are available options.
