Folk on the Rocks is an outdoor music festival held on the third weekend in July every year on the shores of Long Lake in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada every summer. The non-profit festival was founded in 1980.[1]

The weekend event (plus the Friday opening gala "Warm the Rocks") features a balance of musicians from Northern Canada and across the globe.[2] The festival's slogan is, "Where the road ends, the music begins."[3]

The 2010 festival (30th anniversary) took place July 16–18, 2010.
