TO COLLECT YOUR TICKETS

If you purchased your tickets through Ticketmaster, you must contact a Ticketmaster outlet to arrange for collection. After 12 noon on the Wednesday of the Festival week, Ticketmaster tickets will only be available at the On-Site Box Office (North Gate) during the hours posted for the On-Site Box Office.

Tickets purchased online via edmontonfolkfest.org or by phone to the Folk Fest Office are processed in June and will be ready for collection in July.  Tickets can also be held at the Folk Festival Main Gate for no charge.  If you require mailing, a mail fee can be added at time of purchase for an additional charge.  Tickets will not be mailed until July, so we will not mail tickets out of country and will instead hold those for collection at the gate.

Instructions for collection at our Festival Ticket Office as well as hours of operation will be forwarded to you via email (to the address provided when you made your purchase). To collect your passes from the Folk Festival Ticket Office, you will require photo ID as well as the confirmation number provided at time of purchase. The Folk Fest Ticket Office is located at 10115-97 A Ave ( River Valley – Rossdale Flats on the North West End of the James MacDonald Bridge). 

Tickets not collected (including Ticketmaster purchases) on the Wednesday of the festival week, will be transferred to the On-site Box Office at the North Gate on the first day of the event.  If you are picking up tickets at the gate, please allow for extra time as there may be a lineup.  Photo ID will be required to obtain the pass so if you wish to have someone else collect your tickets at the either our Main Ticket Office or at the On-site Box Office, you will need to call the box office in advance to make arrangements.

Please check the box office hours below to ensure that the appropriate ticket/box office is open when you come to collect your tickets.
