Festivals Retreat

All Folk Music Ontario Festival Members and selected special guests are invited to participate in the Festivals' Retreat, which takes place annually during springtime, in Ontario.

The Festivals' Retreat is the only event of its kind that is a gathering of the executive, governance, management, and administration of Folk Festivals in Ontario. We bring in experts to lead discussions on topics focussed on the successful execution of festivals, with an emphasis on peer-to-peer learning, networking, and sharing. 

For more information about the 2023 Festivals' Retreat, please contact our Executive Director, Rosalyn Dennett.
