The second annual Bear Creek Folk Music Festival takes place August 18-20, 2017 on Borstad Hill in Muskoseepi Park, in the heart of Grande Prairie. The fest features 4 stages with 35 provincial, national, and international touring artists performing from a wide range of genres, including country, Celtic, blues, gospel, Americana, bluegrass, world music, contemporary and traditional folk, rock, and many things in between.
The festival is organized by a non-profit society under Alberta’s Societies Act. The Bear Creek Folk Music Festival Society is governed by a volunteer board that helps coordinate a small staff and team of 500 volunteers that make this event possible. Funding sources include grant funding, revenue generation, donations, gift-in-kind support, and community sponsorship.
