Winterfolk Location, Dates, Times and Directions

Many of Our Finest Music Venues did not Survive the COVID-19 Pandemic

Sadly, many of the Toronto’s finest venues have permanently closed due to the COVID-19 virus. Winterfolk is patterned after a summer park festival with multiple stages running simultaneously, where people walk from stage to stage with schedule in hand. The Winterfolk model needs five stages in close proximity. Forunately venues on the Danforth are still able to meet our criteria.

Winterfolk spent many of our 20 years on the Danforth, and it is fortunate and fitting that we celebrate our 20th year at that location.
