Ever wish the Winnipeg Folk Festival happened not just once, but twice a year? 
We thought so. 
Here’s the chance to feel that warm, friendly festival magic before the new year!

Festival in the City is the theme of our gala for our education and outreach programs. 
Wear your best festival outfit and enjoy a night of food and drinks and a performance 
by our 2012 Artistic Achievement Award recipient, Sarah Harmer and Imaginary Cities!

Thanks to everyone who supported our Winter Wassail. 
This Festival in the City gala replaces the Winter Wassail.
