This weekend is the 12th annual Jasper Folk Music Festival! It always takes place early September. The last summer I was in Jasper, I had to leave early September to go back to university and just missed the folk fest. As an avid folk fest attendee back home in Ontario, I was obviously very excited to check out the festival this year!
I signed up to volunteer (which conveniently gave me a free pass to the festival). My volunteer shifts were in the merchandise tent, where I had a good view of the stage and got to listen to the music my entire shift.

My shifts finished early in the evening, which meant I got to enjoy the music for the rest of the night. I spent several happy hours discovering new artists, which is my favourite part of going to festivals, and soaking up all the good music.
