August 16th – 18th, 2024

We’re holding a photography contest in honour of Summerfolk 40. The Georgian Bay Folk Society logo was inspired by the image of David Essig tuning up under a tree on the shore at the first Summerfolk. We challenge you to take a photo inspired by the logo, send it to us with “contest” and “Your Name” in the subject line, and we’ll post it on our Facebook page. The three contest photos that collect the most ‘likes’ between June 16th and 30th will receive a prize.
Have some fun and be creative!
