ONTARIO MUSIC FESTIVAL ROUND UP

ONTARIO MUSIC FESTIVAL ROUND UP

The summer has arrived and with it come the long hot days and cool nights that make for the perfect setting to enjoy all your favourite acts! There’s nothing like grabbing a group of friends and spending a weekend immersed in a festival – it’s almost like another world!  Ontario is home to some of the best festivals in the country and with scenery that keeps diehards coming back year after year. We know you Sudburians are last minute folk so we took the liberty of putting together a list of road trip worthy festivals to hit up this summer, get out there and make some memories!

These boots are made for walking at the workshop stage.
