Folk on the Rocks has come a long way since founder Rod Russell and his band of folkie go-getters re-booted a small outdoor gig on the shores of Frame Lake, and transported it over to Long Lake in the summer in 1980.
We are one of Canada’s top summertime music and cultural festivals, drawing performers from the NWT, Nunavut and across the globe for the North’s biggest party under the midnight sun.
More than 24 hours of programming on five stages, including a Children’s Area and a beer garden, promises fun and enjoyment for all ages. Along with the music, crowds can savour international and traditional cuisine at the food fair, and buy Northern creative works in the Art on the Rocks area.
Come delight in this musical offering and be a part of the magic as performers from all over Canada and the world create and collaborate in the biggest artistic jam in the North.
Folk on the Rocks is supported by over 300 volunteers. If you wish to volunteer there are over 20 fun areas to which you can donate your time and energy. The dedication of volunteers makes Folk on the Rocks the success that it is. Come be part of the magic!
