The Danforth BIA Welcomes Winterfolk to the Area

The 14th Annual Winterfolk Blues and Roots Festival, taking place February 12-14, 2016, in Toronto, is set to present an innovative and musically eclectic array of events that will fill five stages and feature many fresh new faces. 

Winterfolk once again boasts a treasure trove of both new, emerging Canadian artists and veterans alike. It is an all-ages, mid-winter, weatherproof event, where you’ll find the best of urban, blues, rock, jazz, country, folk and roots music, emulating a multi-stage rural summer festival. More than 150 artists will be performing at four venues and five stages over three days of the long Family Day weekend.
