About the festival:


Every year for 3 days, Saskatoon comes alive with the sights, sounds and tastes of our ethnic heritage. Thousands of volunteers contribute hundreds of hours to ensure visits to each pavilion is a great experience. Performers of all ages, combined with exquisite artisans, global merchants, talented cooks, and enthusiastic servers, are proud to share their unique culture with every festival goer.



The festival is comprised of up to 25 ethnic pavilions located throughout the city. Inside each pavilion, visitors will find cultural displays, dance, song, food, folklore, fables and skits. The Ambassadors and Youth Ambassadors greet visitors with a warm welcome at each pavilion. It's this unique blend of multicultural experiences and dining/shopping that has allowed Folkfest to become one of Saskatoon's most popular summer attractions, as well as Western Canada's Premiere Cultural Festival.
