The Ontario Festival of Small Halls is promising to ignite local stages this fall with a flurry of big music – and today festival organizers announced the internationally-renowned musicians who will be filling beloved community spaces across eastern Ontario and the Upper Ottawa Valley with incredible sound.

See the line-up, schedule and venues here! 

Back of FOSH postcardThe Festival of Small Halls is setting the stage to welcome big name musical acts to rural Ontario, from September 15 to October 2, 2016, while also showcasing great local talent.  After almost all of the shows in last year’s instalment sold out, the Festival of Small Halls is expanding its scope to include 24 rural gathering spaces.

The musical celebration is taking place in intimate settings to build community, remind us why these spaces are an important part of the rural landscape and even attract visitors to new regions. The events will get toes tapping in charming venues from Maxville to Maberly, and from across the Rideau Lakes region to Burritt’s Rapids. Just as noteworthy as the venues are the artists who will be gracing the small hall stages this year.

Tickets for individual events will go on sale this Friday, June 24 at 10 a.m. at www.thefestivalofsmallhalls.com or by phone at 613.791.3476.

Additional openers will be announced in the weeks to come. Stay tuned for more updates! Connect with us over Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to stay in the know, or sign up for our email list to be the first to know our news!
