Deep Roots Music Festival
Usually every September, on the last full weekend of the month, the Deep Roots Music Cooperative brings an awesome blend of up-and-coming, alongside tried-and-true, performers to our festival stages. As well, the weekend includes free events for all ages.
In 2021, because of COVID 19, we had to shift gears, and in 2022, Hurricane Fiona caused us to cancel… but in 2023 the Deep Roots Music Festival is coming back!
We have planned our 2023 program now, and you can count on a lot of our favourite festival features. Our parade is at the heart of the festival on Saturday at noon. Our pass includes 3 Main Stage shows with crowd-pleasing performers, and 4 intimate workshops and artist collaborations. For those who love to sing, join the annual Sunday morning sing-along ‘Rise Up Singing’ at Festival Theatre, where food and cash donations will be accepted for the local Food Bank.
Wolfville Summer Concert Series
The Wolfville Summer Concert Series, a partnership between Deep Roots and the Town of Wolfville, runs throughout the summer, each Sunday afternoon from 2:00 to 4:00 in the Waterfront Park in Wolfville.
Presented at the Festival each September, the Valley Arts Award recognizes someone who is, or has been, a resident, has worked for the development and/or promotion of Valley artists, arts events, and/or culture; and has made a significant long-term contribution to the arts in the Valley.
Our 2023 recipient will be announced in early September. Nominations for 2024 should be in the form of a letter, or e-mail, outlining the contribution the individual has made to the cultural life of the region. For more particulars, click on above link and go to the Award page.
