filling Station brings literary performances to Folk Fest!

Words are folk too!

For the first time ever, literary performances will be part of the Calgary Folk Music Festival!

filling Station
brings you some of Calgary’s best and brightest poets and fiction writers under the sun.

Fill up on inspiration at the inaugural filling Station Tent in the Community Area at Prince’s Island Park throughout Saturday and Sunday July 25th & 26th!

Open Mic: Writers are also invited to bring their own work to read at the Open Mic from 4:30-5:30 both days.

Sign up at the filling Station table any time during the day – first come, first served. Sound set-up includes an XLR & ¼ inch combo input jack for musical instruments and another for iPod, so readers are welcome to incorporate music into their performance if desired!
