The site of the Winnipeg Folk Festival has undergone some major changes in time for the event's 40th edition, which kicks off on Wednesday.
From brand-new concession stands with shaded rooftops for food vendors, to two new stages nestled in the forest, the festival site at Birds Hill Provincial Park will look a little different this year.
Festival-goers will also notice, among other things, more drinking water taps, a new location for the on-site tavern, and a "tower" that some say resembles a tipi or a bonfire.
The redeveloped site costs $5.4 million. Funding was provided from the provincial and federal governments and the private sector.
But the work isn't quite done yet: the festival's campsites will be revamped next year.
