We cannot wait to return to Fraser River Heritage Park and invite you to join us on July 26 – 28, 2024 for our 37th Annual Mission Folk Music Festival. We’re all about the magic of music bringing people together! 

From Indigenous throat singers and bluegrass musicians to Trinidadian rhythms, Swedish folk tunes &  beyond, we are  showcasing artists from across Canada and around the world, bringing a blend of traditional and contemporary music, song and dance to our stages! Connecting & celebrating people across cultures, geographies, and generations through music, song, stories, dance, and sharing of cultural traditions together in one of BC’s most beautiful parks.

Come for the music, stay for the friendships – find your folk!

Shrinking the spaces between artists and audience at our festival, we create an intimate and immersive experience that fosters connections. Discover traditional & contemporary folk music, stories and songs from across Canada and around the world right here at home.  Join us in celebrating the vibrant spirit of community, where people of all ages and backgrounds come together to share in the joy of music and song.

🎶 We’ve curated a special playlist to give you a taste of what’s in store at the festival in July. Dive in and discover the magic awaiting you! 🎶

It takes a village to build a festival, powered by its volunteers. A love of great music and a passion for service brings together a community of volunteers dedicated to planning and producing our world-class event. Volunteering with the Mission Folk Music Festival is a rewarding experience and a great way to support the Festival! Each year we welcome 250 plus volunteers and we would love to have you join us. This year our festival dates are July 26 – 28, 2024.
