After 2 years of virtual celebrations, the Mission Folk Music Festival is returning to in-person festivities from July 22nd-24th for its 35th annual Folk Fest at Fraser River Heritage Park!
This festival began in 1988 as a small 1-day event and has now grown into a 3-day celebration that showcases popular, emerging and rarely-heard artists right here in Mission, B.C. Performers vary from local to international, some of them very rarely doing performances in North America! Occurring every July, this music festival is one of the most iconic summer activities in the Fraser Valley.
Here's what you can look forward to at the highly anticipated 35th annual Mission Folk Music Festival this year!
Listen to the Lineup
The 2022 Folk Festival welcomes over 20 artists featuring talents like William Prince, Shakara S'Aida, Shred Kelly, The Crescent Sky and Clerel (to name a few!) If you want to get a taste of what you'll be listening to at the festival before hand, check out the 2022 Mission Folk Music Festival Spotify playlist.
You can also find the full day-to-day line-up here.
