Ottawa Folk Festival organizers today confirmed partnerships with the student associations of three of Ottawa’s major post-secondary institutions—University of Ottawa, Carleton University, and Algonquin College. The arrangement allows for area students to receive up to 50% off on Ottawa Folk Festival tickets for select nights.
- The Algonquin Students’ Association will be offering discounted tickets for Monday, September 10 (Bon Iver and others) to Algonquin students. These tickets are available in the student association office on campus.
- Carleton University Students’ Association will be offering discounted tickets for Saturday, September 8 (Great Big Sea and others) and Monday September 10 (Bon Iver). These tickets are available to Carleton students in the Atrium (Uni Centre) or the CUSA office.
- In addition, first-year students registered in Carleton University’s Orientation Program will have tickets to the Ottawa Folk Festival for Saturday September 8 included as part of their Orientation kits.
- The University of Ottawa will provide members of their student body with discounted tickets for Sunday, September 9 (Dan Mangan) and Monday, September 10. These tickets will be available through the students’ federation (SFUO) on campus.
“The appeal of this year’s Folk Festival line-up has led to a keen interest amongst students in Ottawa,” says Ottawa Folk Festival Supervisor, Mark Monahan. “Developing a formal relationship with all three institutions has allowed us to provide students with easier access to the festival.”
