Winterfolk Blues and Roots Festival

Winterfolk was formed to entertain, educate, enlighten, engage and encourage the community about various folk music styles including roots, blues, folk and more. Founded by Festival Director Brian Gladstone, it is run as a division of The Association of Artists for a Better World, a registered non-profit organization in the Province of Ontario, Canada.

The Winterfolk Blues & Roots Festival is currently held annually in February at various venues in Toronto’s Danforth and Broadview area. Some of the finest Canadian (and some international) folk, roots, jazz, world and blues artists are selected to perform. For more information and updates please visit
