Lordy Lordy Look Who’s Forty

That would be Summerfolk.

Forty years is a significant milestone whether you are a festival, a human or even a sea turtle.

That’s why, this year, we’ll be celebrating our 40th with a birthday bash on Thursday, August 20th at Kelso Beach.

We’ve got a beautiful new clearspan tent for the Down By the Bay stage, big enough have 1000 of you under cover, and with no interior poles the new tent means there is not a bad seat in the house.

We’re finalizing the details on the performers for the Thursday so watch this blog and our Facebook page for updates…

On the site during the daytime we will also have more of you covered. Looking back in the archive we noticed some pictures of a tent covering the audience at the Gazebo. How wise were the old ones! We’ll be doing the same this year.

A Clear span tent for the Over the Hill Dance area means that we will have a dance floor free of obstruction. No poles, just clear sailing.

Summerfolk 40. Great music, Great people always

All of these new features are made possible by a grant we received from the Ontario Music Fund.

Tickets for the thursday night are separate from the 3-weekend pass. Ticket info here.
