The Market also offers crafts and other locally-produced items to choose from. You might even catch a busker!

Canmore Folk Music Festival

Aug 5, 2017 — Aug 7, 2017

The Canmore Folk Music Festival is the longest running folk music festival in Alberta and one of its finest. Adhering to a philosophy and legacy of folk, world, blues and roots music, the festival since 1978 has attracted up to 21,000 music fans annually from across southern Alberta, western Canada, the northwestern USA and indeed the world. Taking place over three days of the Heritage Day long weekend in August, the festival features 18 individual acts or performers, an alcohol-free, family-friendly site, a free children’s concert on the Saturday afternoon, a free downtown street dance on the Friday evening and a kids’ area jammed with crafts, puppets, theater, bouncy castle and climbing wall. Its venue is the downtown Centennial Park in the heart of Canmore’s valley bottom. Surrounded on all sides by the majestic Rocky Mountains, the backdrop of breathtaking scenery merely enhances the incredible music pouring forth from three stages all weekend long. Each evening the main stage concert features six hours and six performances highlighting the best of what each has to offer. Our audiences are renowned for their respectful listening, allowing every patron to enjoy the music and every performer to enjoy the rapt attention directed their way. We also have a pub venue within short walking distance.
