Did you know? The Festival of Small Halls is a not-for-profit organization that has been operating since 2014. We have put on close to 80 shows in your small halls, in nearly 35 communities across Eastern Ontario. As we continue to grow, we are always looking for partners who might want to get involved in a fun, meaningful way, and for sponsors who are looking for new and innovative branding opportunities. Thank you to all of you who have supported us over the years and continue to do so. Many more shows lie ahead, with our 2018 lineup reveal set for mid-June.
