Event Description

Mission Statement
The Ottawa Folk Festival is a non-profit volunteer-based community organization which celebrates the creativity of musicians, dancers, artisans, and storytellers through an annual festival and a series of concerts during the year.

The Mandate of the Ottawa Folk Festival is to:
Provide performers with a space in which creativity, imagination, and exploration are celebrated as fundamental to personal expression;

Recognize dance as a means to both connect the body with the spirit and the music to ourselves; embrace the participation of visual artists and craftspeople as an integral component of the artistic community at the festival;

Present the greater community with the opportunity to enhance their experience of the festival by listening to, sharing in, and creating music, dance and stories; treat our volunteers and staff, who are the heart of our organization, with respect and care, and provide them with opportunities for personal and professional growth;

Consider our sponsors and friends as valuable members of our organization, whose presence, ideas, and feedback are essential to the ongoing vitality of the festival; enhance the cultural life and contribute to the economic activity of the local community, the city, and the region; and encourage a sense of community in all who participate in shaping the festival, while challenging ourselves to uphold the values the festival promotes.
