The most wonderful time of the year

It's the most wonderful time of the year - the 2016 Winnipeg Folk Festival is here! 

Only two more sleeps until one of the biggest local event of the summer kicks off; are you ready to go? We've all been counting down the days since last year's finale, and our tents, tarps and coolers are all packed and ready. If you've somehow let this weekend sneak up on you, don't worry - you're not alone, and we've got you covered. 

Come down to the shop to pick up one of our many sale sandals for an easy slip-on/slip-off festival shoe. While it's an obvious tradition to go barefoot, it's best to have a sandal on hand for when you're walking the unbeaten trails or working a volunteer shift.

Keep your daytime essentials together in one of our durable and easy to clean canvas bags, complete with convertible straps, zip compartments, and even detachable water bottle holders on select bags. 

Most importantly: keep track of set times and your personal concert schedule with a handy and unique wrap watch, like the small embroidered one below. 

Finally, festival fashion. We at Rooster are most definitely not above wearing tie dye while celebrating the genre that revolutionized the way we fight for peace, man. Try a flowy dress or loose-fitting shorts over your swimsuit or bodysuit (for maximized freedom of movement while dancing!). 

Happy Folk Fest, guys and gals! See you at the mainstage!
