Perseverance Folk Festival

Labour Day Weekend brings Perseverance Folk Fest to Cumberland. Join the Cumberland Museum and Archives and friends for a sweet little old fashioned folk festival in the heart of the historic Village of Cumberland.

From miners and mountains to factories and farms and from trials to triumphs to resilience and revolution, join us for songs and stories “that fit between the cracks”, songs shared between friends and neighbours and passed down through generations, songs all about the messy and beautiful human story.

Featuring Veda Hille, The Fits, Jesse Waldman, Nice Verde, Gord Carter and many more!

Held in the territory of the K’ómoks First Nation, in the Village of Cumberland, on the site of the #6 Coal Mine and presented by the Cumberland Museum and Archives. Bring down a blanket, a picnic and your family for a full day of wonderful music from local and visiting artists.

$40 each, Kids 16 and under are FREE. Bring a blanket, low rider chairs (very low) welcome. Dogs permitted only if on leash and restricted to your banket. Parking available at Dunsmuir and Sutton Road (CRI lot) and behind the Museum and Cultural Centre.
