We’re finally coming together for our first in-person event—FOLKLIFE Live!


In the support of local and independent publishing, FOLKLIFE Live! aims to celebrate living close to the earth, with intention, and creativity.


Taking place Saturday August 27th from 3-10pm on a Salt Spring Island Mount Maxwell farm, it features rockin’ bands such as Jack Garton and the Demon Squadron, Caleb Hart & Co, and Sarah Osborne, Indigenous dance group The Young Wolves Dancers, readings from fabulous FOLKLIFE writers, family activities, and all ending with ecstatic dance from Shauna Devlin.


Tickets will go fast, so don't miss it!



Postponed from our April 2020 FOLKLIFE launch event, this is our inaugural FOLKLIFE event, and we’re grateful to hold this outdoor event on the Coast Salish Territory of the Tsa'wout Territory.


By coming to FOLKLIFE Live!, you’re not only going to have a great time and support local businesses, makers, writers, and artists, but you’re saying that independent local publishing matters. That our stories matter. Print publishing is not known to be a break-even business, especially when we solely print and hire locally, but your stories matter, and we strive to continue using our time, skills, and passion to get them into the world.
