THE Winnipeg Folk Festival aims to be more kid-friendly in 2014.
Children 12 and under who are accompanied by an adult will be admitted free to the festival and can camp in the festival campgrounds free as well when all the excitement takes place July 9-13, 2014.
Under the festival's old policy, only children 5 and under were allowed in free of charge.
"The festival is rich with tradition and we hope that by making it affordable to families they will keep those folk festival traditions alive by passing them down to the next generation," festival executive director Lynne Skromeda said in a release.
Earlybird tickets for next year's festival go on sale Nov. 30 at the Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store and through Ticketmaster. For full ticket information, go to www.winnipegfolkfestival.ca/festival/tickets.
