Saskatoon Folkfest 2023 – Connecting Communities
Folkfest 2023 is August 17, 18 (5PM – 12AM) & 19 (3PM – 12AM).
Saskatoon Folkfest is excited to announce that seventeen pavilions will collectively showcase the diversity within our community on August 17, 18 & 19. Folkfest 2023 | Connecting Communities will immerse festival patrons in multiculturalism through dynamic local performances, displays, activities, and incredible flavours while they discover and explore the traditions and history that make Saskatoon a vibrant and welcoming city. Folkfest is delighted to welcome the Iranian community as a new Pavilion along with the Bangladesh, Cameroon, Chinese, Francophone, German, India, Indian & Métis, Irish, Japan, Norway, Pakistan, Philippines, Scottish, Sri Lanka, Ukrainian Karpaty and Vietnamese Pavilions. With seven sites, including two collaborative multi-Pavilion venues, patrons can anticipate another remarkable festival experience.
Travelling the globe without leaving the city creates the incomparable festival atmosphere that Folkfest is renowned for. With their Folkfest ePassport, patrons will continue to enjoy unlimited admission and free bus transportation to and from all Pavilions during the three-day festival.
ePassports are $16.50 (taxes and fees included). Children twelve and under are free when accompanied by an adult.
