Hello and welcome to the 22nd Annual Winterfolk Festival, now featuring its first-ever Spring Edition! We’re thrilled to have you here at Toronto’s historic Redwood Theatre.

At Winterfolk, you’ll find three fantastic stages to enjoy. The main stage is below us. Upstairs, we have a workshop stage and an open stage for artists to sign up and play a few tunes that will be active until 6:00 PM today.

Our dedicated team of volunteers is working hard to ensure Winterfolk is an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for everyone in the music community.

There are posters around the room which contain a QR link to the performance schedule on your devices.

Winterfolk extends its gratitude to our sponsors whose financial support has made this event possible. A big thank you to the Government of Canada, Long & McQuade Musical Instruments, and the Socan Foundation.

Enjoy the festival, and if you need anything, don’t hesitate to reach out to our friendly team!
