Folk News

Wave 2 of artist announcements is here!

In what has been two weeks full of concerning news, we are excited to be able to provide our patrons with some very good, and very exciting news. At this time, Folk On The Rocks is optimistic that we will be able to move ahead for our 40th Anniversary festival on July 17-19, 2020. At the time of writing, the risk of COVID-19 is low in our community, and we are confident that the current social-distancing precautions being taken will have alleviated in time for Folk On The Rocks this July. That being said, our staff and board are closely monitoring the situation with the health and safety of our patrons and artists being top of mind, and we are prepared to take direction from the Northwest Territories Public Health Officer closer to festival season. In the event that Folk On The Rocks 2020 is cancelled due to COVID-19, patrons would receive an automatic refund on their ticket.        

For the 40th Anniversary of Folk On The Rocks, the board and selections committee have been determined to make this year bigger and better than ever. For this reason, we are beyond excited to this second wave of artists that we'll be welcoming to our stage this July 17-19, 2020.
