Festival Roundup: Music to Your Ears

September 2, 2022

Get swept away with sound! Our province-wide festival of free arts and culture programming is packed with musical moments, including outdoor and seated concerts, symphonies and concert bands, and even visual art inspired by music.

We recommend performances in our Regional Hubs of Guelph, Halton Hills, and Scugog, including many up-and-coming Canadian artists. And be sure to sit in on — and when you can, participate in — culture-sharing concerts or events honouring traditional instruments. These events are sure to mesmerize.


The Ontario Culture Days Festival is a provincewide and month-long event offering exclusively free arts and culture programming. With over 1000 events to enjoy, there’s something for everyone. Find an event near you
