Thank you for visiting us at the Winnipeg Folk Festival
The weather was glorious this time, the best we've enjoyed in years, and the attendance was bigger than ever. The Fresh Café food service was hopping and Tall Grass was enjoyed by scores of festival-goers. As usual, Tall Grass was also behind the scenes, fuelling the fine folk peformers and volunteers with muffins at the hotel hospitality.

Sunflower Oil Press in Action
