Our 2019 festival will feature a stacked lineup, including Feist, Blue Rodeo, Alan Doyle, Crash Test Dummies, Dan Mangan, Ruthie Foster, and many more. Our past lineups have included the likes of case/lang/veirs (Neko Case, kd lang, and Laura Veirs), City and Colour, Michael Franti, Corb Lund, Bruce Cockburn, Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder, Matt Andersen, Ashley MacIsaac, and Bahamas.

This is a family-friendly event, with children under 12 entering free, and youth and senior discounts available. The vibe is relaxed and all about enjoying world-class music. Sit and listen for a bit then move to the next stage, or find some shade and spend the day in one place soaking up the tunes. 

The kids area offers free face-painting and arts & crafts. Enjoy craft beer, ciders, and wines in our beer gardens. Artisan vendors, diverse food options, and a stocked merch tent round out the fest’s offerings.
