Bear Creek Folk Festival



Artists wishing to apply to perform at the Bear Creek Folk Festival can send a short submission email with the subject header “Artist Submission” to with the following:

  1. 3 links to youtube videos of recent live performances
  2. Where you are from/where you live
  3. A short list of highlights, including notable performances that you have done.
  4. The format you currently perform in and your expected fee range.

We get hundreds of applicants for very few spots, and are not able to book all the artists we like. If you do not hear from us by March 16th, it means that your application was not successful, and we encourage you to try again next year.

Note: We rarely book artists that we have not seen live. We encourage you to notify us when you have a performance in the Grande Prairie area, at another major festival (we attend Edmonton and Calgary every year) or at major showcase events like Folk Alliance. For Grande Prairie based artists, we run an open mic every second Thursday, and always attend, on the lookout for up and coming local talent.
