June 23-25th, Feels Good Community Inc., partnered with Graystone Brewing, presents the 9th annual Feels Good Folly Fest at the Queen’s County Fairground. Folly Fest is a lovingly curated music experience bringing talent from Fredericton, the Maritimes, and beyond. Eight stages, with over seventy acts, food vendors, art market, silent disco, and kids’ zone (open 10:30am- 7pm, with fun workshops all day long) make June 23-25th the best weekend of the summer.

Folly Fest is excited to showcase local acts such as The Hypochondriacs, David in the Dark, Keith Hallett, and Kill Chicago. Vancouver based band Five Alarm Funk is back in 2017, after a standout performance at the 2016 show. Joining an incredibly diverse lineup all the way from Jerusalem, is the G-Nome Project, closing the Main Stage on Sunday.

We have amazing talent lined up for our live Art Stages. Watch masterpieces being created all weekend long, then head over to the Art Market for your chance to purchase them. New this year, we are introducing Folly Films, a mini film festival showcasing local filmmakers!

“Woah! 9 years already? It certainly shows with the line-up this year.” – Paul McAllister, Feels Good Executive Director
