The Winnipeg Folk Fest Hand-Made Village Call for Submissions - 2024

The Winnipeg Folk Fest will take place July 11th - 14th, 2024 in Birds Hill Provincial Park. We are thrilled to feature artisans from across Canada who create their own work in our Hand-Made Village!

More information and applications are now available on our website:


Application Deadline: January 18, 2023.

In addition to the online application, we are looking for your best samples so that we can select a balanced group of artisans for the festival. There is an option on the application page to submit supplemental photographs of your work. However, we encourage you to send samples as this is the best way to showcase your work; digital images don’t show the quality and artisanship that goes into each piece!

Samples can be sent to or dropped off at 203-211 Bannatyne Ave., Winnipeg, MB, R3B 3P2, c/o Hand-Made Village. If you are planning to drop off samples, please be aware that our offices will be closed for the holidays December 23, 2023 through January 7, 2024. Our regular office hours are Monday – Thursday 9AM – 4PM.

We will contact all applicants when samples are ready for pick-up. Samples will only be returned by mail if postage, pre-paid return label or pre-paid envelope are provided. If you wish to donate your samples to be used in a future festival fundraiser, feel free to leave us a note with your samples or send us an email.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at [email protected]

We look forward to hearing from you!
