Friends of the Festival

Become a Friend of the Festival and you will be supporting the Ottawa Folk Festival organization while also providing access for newcomers to Canada to a fantastic Canadian folk music experience!

 

 

Folk festivals are built from their local community and at the heart of it, community is what folk festivals truly are. The Ottawa Folk Festival is no exception.

Beginning in 2011, the Ottawa Folk Festival is partnering with local immigration centres to make festival tickets available to immigrants, refugees, and other newcomers to Canada who may not have access or face barriers to such great events like the Ottawa Folk Festival.  We are working to make our festival as diverse and rich as our communities and to ensure that everyone is welcome.

Support this endeavour to connect newcomers to both folk music and to our community as they become members of the great Ottawa community while also supporting the Festival itself.
