Did you know that Canterbury Folk Festival was only planned to last a few years? Here we are nineteen years into a five year plan. The reason it has continued is because of you, our faithful audience.
Canterbury has become a staple in Ingersoll’s summer list of fun things to do. It is a moment when the whole family can gather together and enjoy the company of friends, food and of course the song and dance of our many local, national and international performers. This year is no different. Everyone one will find a special connection with all the entertainers coming this year. We are also proud to be the first waste free festival and encourage everyone to take note and do what they can to aim towards zero waste at home and at work. Thank you “Transition to Less Waste” for setting the example.
There are two fuels that power Canterbury Folk Festival. The first is our volunteers. We have a board that works tirelessly to put on the best of festivals. Every year we call upon hundreds of good folks to volunteer their time to make this festival what it is today. Thank you. We can always use more. Please inquire. The second is our sponsors. Without them we cannot keep this great festival free which allows us to provide top notch entertainers to everyone. Read the list of sponsors and please thank them when you see them.
To all those visiting Ingersoll, welcome to the Hub of the Earth! Take your time here. See our award winning museum, our parks, our many shops and friendly people. It’s a great place to live. Hint, hint.
Now back to our faithful town audience. Have fun, enjoy and take care.
