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.

We are planning our 2024 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.
