I have one, 5 day full weekend pass with camping ticket for sale. I would like to sell it tomorrow so I can go buy my husbands and my regular weekend passed instead still for early bird price. We will not be able to camp in the ff campground this year so I am selling my ticket.

I will be in Winnipeg tomorrow and can meet @ kildonan place between 9am-2:30pm to sell the ticket.

Please email for phone number and info.

Thanks, Trisha

I'm happy to be the first person to announce Folk Fest has released the 2010 performer lineup :D


I won't say any names but holy smokes, I'm super stoked about some of the artists coming to Winnipeg !!

Probably the most requested tickets ever to swipe across LJ's pages are for the Winnipeg Folk Festival.

Early bird tickets went on sale today (saturday Feb 13th) for $215 and that includes the festival and the camping pass. You can buy them at the festival music store on Bannatyne or buy them online at www.winnipegfolkfestival.ca

You've been told/warned/warranted/whatever. Don't come crying on here in May/June that the tickets are sold out and you had no idea they'd sell out so soon. Wah wah wah.

Documentary Dude Nov. 16th, 2009 @ 07:46 am
There was a fellow and his wife (or significant other) that was filming documentaries across Canada, 2 years ago. He was doing some filming roadside at the Birds Hill Park gate and I saw him interviewing a few other folkies throughout the weekend.

My question to you beautiful people is this: Does anybody know who that fellow was, what his documentary title is, when/where it's been release or any other relevant information such as that? It's a totally narcissistic inquiry, as I was interviewed by him roadside being that my good friend Ilan and I were the first people in line at the gate that year.

Any help would be super greatly appreciated!!

Well, its over.

Anyone got any good folk fest stories?
» Just one needed!
You may remember my previous post about needing camping passes. I've located one for myself through a friend, but the boyfriend still needs one. He's making all these plans about folk fest, but I don't know if he realizes how high demand these tickets are. Silly kid.

If anyone knows of someone that suddenly can't go or has one to sell, let me know. We'll pay a little extra if we have to (but really, we're both recent university grads that don't have much cash to be throwing around), plus any baked good you desire. Cupcakes, pies, rolls, cinnamon buns, you name it. Or homemade perogies. Mmm.

For anyone that doesn't want to scroll back to get the story, we initially had camping passes lined up through an acquaintance until she realized she could scalp them for upwards of $250 each. Sigh. Not very "folky", if you ask me.

Hey all! I hope someone here can maybe help me find something and no, it is not a camping pass.

I've attended the festival every year of my life and I don't want to break the streak now, especially when I've already told my volunteer crew chief I'll be there. Trouble is, I moved from Winnipeg to Toronto for grad school last summer, so I'm far away and kinda broke.

I need a ride from the Toronto region (precise location negotiable) to Winnipeg (Kenora's good too) sometime BEFORE July 8th but AFTER July 1st, and a ride back from Winnipeg (or Kenora or wherever) to Toronto (or vicinity) after the festival wraps July 12th. Ideally I'd like a few days before or after to visit family and friends.

Can anybody help me with either trip? I won't have much luggage, I'll pay my share of gas and I can bring you muffins or other snacks too. Non-smoker carmates preferred. I've already posted a rideshare ad on Craigslist but I thought I might have more luck here.
» Camping passes.
An acquaintance had purchased two extra camping passes and agreed that my boyfriend and I would get them. While I was away for work, the passes sold out. This girl realized she could make over $200 profit on each of those two camping passes. She is now holding those camping passes for roughly $250 each. Wow. This is what folk fest is about, isn't it? Profit.

So. Of course we're willing to pay extra as a kind of "stupid tax" for not squirreling away money to be able to afford the tickets in early May (my job started again in early May, and I was just waiting on that first paycheque). We're veteran folk festers that just aren't used to watching camping passes get snatched up so quickly. I know many people bought a few extra camping passes in hopes of making the kind of money this girl is expecting. It's kind of sad, and definitely not in the spirit of the festival.. But I guess that's life.

I'll start off the season of questions on the same topic here in the folk fest community. Anyone have two (or even one) camping passes available? Contact kate@cherrystems.com. I'll pay you in dollars and any baked goods you desire.
