Come join us for a weekend of Music (folk, blues, bluegrass, country, Celtic, traditional, etc.) with over 50 artists/groups performing on 12 stages. Performers will start to be announced in December through June, but as the announcements are made, 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. $110 taxes included if you buy by Dec. 31, about a 30% savings. Note: If you are under 25, there is special pricing, and under 12 is free with an adult (sales of those tickets and camping later).
"Festival camping" (only available if you buy a weekend pass/person, parking pass is extra) The "campground" is in Tudhope Park on the shores of Couchiching Lake. 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).
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.
Buy your ticket first from the Mariposa website (you can buy the camping portion later if you're not sure of accommodations) and select the REGISTER button to register for this event.
Organizer: Wendy O.
Meet Location: At Tudhope Park on the Festival Grounds (we will be organizing a camping area for the group).
