Come join us for a weekend of music with over 50 artists/groups. Headliners this year include Juno award winners Bruce Cockburn, the Barenaked Ladies, Matt Anderson, and a Special Musical Celebration of "The Band" . Some of our favourite performers have been people we have never heard of before. One such performer was Irish Mythen who will be back this year. By the end of the festival, you'll certainly know who she is.
Festival Gates open from Friday 4:00 p.m. to midnight; and Saturday & Sunday from 10 a.m. to midnight. That's a lot of music! Many of the performers perform multiple times either by themselves or together as a group.
If you prefer to listen to less music, you can ride your bike, swim , or hike during the day, all available right from your campsite.
This is an event in conjunction with OCEY. In past years, we've had over 20 people attending.
Meet Location: Tudhope Park, Orillia
Cost: Day Pass or Weekend Pass. Buy early as prices significantly go up as the date approaches. If you wait till last minute, the price of a single day is about the same or more than an "early bird" weekend pass. Next major price increase is May 1st.
"Festival camping" (only available if you buy a weekend pass/person -- includes parking. Normally $10 if parking on the grounds.) The "campground" is in Tudhope Park which is a no camping park at all other times. It is adjacent to the festival grounds so you can walk there. You can camp from Thurs. 3 p.m. to Monday 12:00 noon.
Food can be purchased onsite at very reasonable prices, or stoves may be used (limited facilities).
Guests: The Mariposa Folk Festival is a very family-friendly event, and you will see generations of families attending with activities for children/grandchildren to keep them busy. Special pricing for adults under 25, or free for 12 and under.
Organizer: Wendy O.
