35th annual Canmore folk fest a success

For three days last week, the Town of Canmore was transformed into a hub of artistic creativity.

Musicians performed numbers ranging in styles from old Hawaiian cowboy songs to modern folk and blues. Vendors sold handcrafted merchandise and spread awareness about volunteering in impoverished countries. Food trucks supplied a wide variety of taste for any palette from Greek to Mexican, and thousands of people enjoyed every minute of it.

The 35th annual Canmore Folk Festival officially ended Monday evening (Aug. 6) at Centennial Park, but it wasn’t before both residents and visitors soaked up the perfect amount of sunshine, folk tunes and organic bug spray in what can only be described as another successful year for the festival.
