Welcome to the Ontario Festival of Small Halls!

Wow! The Festival of Small Halls has been nominated for two awards this month including Small Festival of the Year (under 6000 people) for the Live Music Industry Awards held at Canadian Music Week (CMW) in Toronto on May 11th and the 2018 Ottawa Valley Special Event of the Year Award held in Renfrew on April 30th. We’re honoured to be included with such fine company in each category.

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.

Submissions for the 2018 festival are now closed. Thank you to all of the halls and artists who submitted to participate in this year’s festival. Due to the high volume of submissions received, only successful applicants will be contacted.
