Come join us for a weekend of music with over 50 artists/groups. Performers have started to be announced such as Danny Michel, Fred Eaglesmith, Nick Lowe, Bahamas, Bill and Joel Plaskett, The Good Lovelies (you've heard them if you've listened to Stuart McLean), Alan Doyle (Great Big Sea), and Buffy Sainte-Marie. Walk off the Earth won the Juno Group of the Year in 2016, and will be one of the headliners. Prices continue to rise as the date gets closer.
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/camping.
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.
"Festival camping" (only available if you buy a weekend pass/person, parking pass is extra) 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.
