Borstad Hill - Muskoseepi Park (Bear Creek Folk Festival)

The first annual Bear Creek Folk Music Festival will take place August 12-14 on Borstad Hill in Muskoseepi Park, in the heart of Grande Prairie. It will feature over 30 provincial, national, and international touring artists in a wide range of genres, including country, Celtic, blues, gospel, Americana, bluegrass, world music, contemporary and traditional folk, rock , and many things in between. With its diverse and high-calibre lineup, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
Our nightly mainstage performances will feature concerts by numerous great headliners, including case/lang/veirs, Corb Lund, Bahamas, Bruce Cockburn, Ashley MacIsaac, Ruthie Foster, and many more.

During the day on Saturday and Sunday, there will be three simultaneously running stages featuring concerts and “sessions”. The sessions partner up multiple artists on one stage at the same time, all performing in the round and collaborating with one other, often resulting in magical and spontaneous music moments that will never be recreated. The sessions are also a great opportunity to see these great artists, including most of the headlining artists, in an intimate, up-close and personal setting.

This is a very family-friendly event, with children under 12 entering free, and youth and senior discounts available. There will be a kids’ area on-site, with crafts, entertainment, and numerous activities.
Site amenities will also include a beer garden and food fair, artisan craft booths, and much more!
