Pacifica sounds pretty good. You tube search would be yoPgCScowjM

Camping in the regular Birds Hill Park campground. You know, the campground
with the Showers!

Not going 'till Thursday. Unfortunately, won't get to see Elvis Costello on Wed night.

Hey there, Maxz... long time no see.
Glad to hear you're going to the Folk Festival.
Will try to catch up to you around the beer tent.
Or better...
Maybe near the Pastie Boutique; hopefully they will make a comeback!

Wow! What a great time at the 36th annual Winnipeg Folk Festival. Just me, my friends (new & old) & 73,000 other people!


A wee bit chilly overnight in the campground, but was nice to have a campfire.

Highlights? ............... So many over the weekend, in various categories. Big, big crowd pleaser on Saturday night Mainstage was the British group, Bellowhead. They had thousands of people, of all ages, on our feet dancing & singing.

Ouch! The sunburn.

I had a great time this year. I went through the Thursday morning monsoon in the comfort of a house in the City.

I thought Steven Page was really good on Sunday. Just him and a cello. Elvis was great.

Somehow I missed meeting up with any POF'ers. Oh well maybe next year.

Hey FGD, I was in the usual parking lot spot all weekend, sorry to have missed you. But as Sparks mentions, we didn't make it to the beer tent until Sunday afternoon.

There were so many good daytime stages to catch. Big Dave McLean hosted a rousing Blues session, Sunday pm. Serena Ryder hosted a terrific stage on Saturday pm with the Great Lake Swimmers.

Seems like the Wpg Folk Festival is stretching at the seams, with growing popularity. Lots of discussion in the media regarding this growth from a charming, homey kind of gathering to the big event of today.

I've been bringing kids the WFF for 17 years. I want to keep it very kid friendly. I like that it is $10.50 for four days for 14 and under. (One more year to go with my youngest.) Tickets for me and my kids was about $460 on the early bird this year. That's my priciest entertainment of the year after food and commuting are included.

People need to feel safe - and WFF is a great place to be. Well, exposure to the elements can be a problem at times.

On the main stage this year some performer started throwing out the F word and I just sort of tuned him out. My kids have heard a lot worse. I don't think the place needs more policing. It seems to be pretty self-policed.

I think they have a nice balance right now.

I'll be back!
