VFMF 2018 – Jericho Beach Park

The 41st Annual Vancouver Folk Music Festival took place this weekend at the beautiful Jericho Beach Park in Vancouver. The weather was absolutely fantastic for the whole three days of the festival, and as always, the event had a solid line up of high quality acts from around the world.

With three days of music and 50 artists on 6 stages there was something for everyone. Although we only made it out to the Saturday, it proved to be a wonderful day with awesome, food, drink, vendors and a friendly crowd, in addition to the awesome music.
