Whatever your language or culture, we welcome you to bring it to this festival. If we don't offer it, please let us know so we can add it.

Help us keep the music alive


We wish to recognize the long history of Indigenous peoples in Canada. In particular, we wish to acknowledge the traditional territory of the Anishinabek, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and the Wendat. May we all live with respect on this land in peace and friendship.
