Prince George Folkfest Society has been bringing musicians from all over the world to Northern BC since our first summer festival in 2004. Since 2007, our society has focused on presenting world class performers on several stages throughout Prince George during Coldsnap – our flagship winter music festival.

Coldsnap is a nine night live music festival that presents artists in different settings with the focus on ticketed evening concerts at various event spaces and soft-seat theatres. In addition, artists perform free daytime community outreach events at schools, recreation centres, local businesses and other small intimate venues mostly around downtown Prince George. The festival features an approximate equal number of national/international artists and Prince George/Northern BC musicians.
