Vancouver Folk Music Festival July 15-17: Your Eating Guide

The 45th Annual Vancouver Folk Music Festival gets underway the weekend of July 15-17, 2022, starting off on Friday afternoon. This is a wonderful festival that features musicians performing from all over the world through Sunday night. This is one of my favourite music festivals, I have attended 30+ festivals over the years! With the pandemic at play over the past few years, the festival returns in person this year. Each year, as much as I look forward to the music I also look forward to the food; and this year the food offerings have been changed up with many new vendors in the festival.

Here is the weekend schedule for all of the concerts being held on site.

Get ready to enjoy the food and the music!
