This year's edition of the Whoop & Hollar Folk Festival is in the books!

Josh Wright is the Artistic Director of the Whoop & Hollar. He outlines how the festival went.

"The festival has been another great celebration of local music, art, and nature," says Wright. "We've pulled artists from across the province, and one artist from Toronto, Ontario that joined our lineup this year. There are so many things going on from workshops for families and kids, as well as our main stage entertainment."

The festival's status was in question after their conditional use permit would only allow them to hold a one-day event. The festival decided to have one day at their original site and then shift to Island Park on Sunday. Wright talks about the support they have received from the community.

"Attendance was a little bit down yesterday but it's picking up today," says Wright. "We feel people are unsure about the weather conditions. The rain has held off and things are shaping up to be quite beautiful."

The festival featured entertainment, wellness workshops, vendors, and food. Wright notes that it takes a lot of people to make this event come together.

"Behind the scenes, it takes a lot of hardworking volunteers to come together in community to help out where needed. They've helped with anything from the backstage crew, to set up, to people working on-site around the clock. We have just over 50 volunteers for this year's festival."

Next year's Whoop & Hollar Folk Festival will take place on August 29th, and 30th.
