Festival with history and heart working to confirm headliners

Wow, what a super response to our hall announcement! We can’t wait to meld community and big music in cherished halls across eastern Ontario and the Ottawa Valley.

Each venue is unique this year, whether it be through its history, architecture or even it volunteers – but all have one thing in common: they are beyond enchanting! Not that we want to wish away summer, but we’re already looking forward to fall so we can bring exciting live music into these beloved places.

With that in mind, we have some big news… next week we’ll be announcing three additional halls for the 2017 schedule! We are beyond delighted to welcome more intriguing community spaces to the Ontario Festival of Small Halls.

In fact, we’re too thrilled to keep all of the Small Halls news to ourselves, so we’re once again blogging weekly. Look here each Wednesday until October as we’ll be posting once a week to give you the inside scoop on the festival’s community venues, schedule, artists, musical musings and more.

Festival staff members are currently working behind the scenes to make this year’s Ontario Festival of Small Halls the best yet. Meetings with hall contacts, securing big name artists, connecting with municipalities, partnering with community dinners, communicating with media promotions, advertising and finalizing dates – it’s all happening.

Did you know that the Ontario Festival of Small Halls is now in its fourth year? The first year saw three venues, the second year we grew to encompass 12, the third year the festival doubled to 24 and now we’re up to more than 30 halls! We’re counting down the days until we announce the musical acts and the dates of each show in the newly-expanded festival. Stay tuned!
