THE MUSIC /ENTERTAINMENT
Festival Goers can expect to hear a wide variety of local, regional and touring acts this year! Ranging from the blues, to cabaret, funk, traditional and roots, to old time country, a sprinkle of blue grass, rock, and a healthy dash of R&B and soul! Our outdoor stage this year will feature theatrical performances for the first time, beginning with ‘Anne: A Green Gables Memoir’ a short play, and ‘A Superior Love Story’ which features multi disciplinary arts- music, dance, spoken word and live painting. Belly Dance performance and workshop is another attraction this year, alongside local and regional artists performing throughout the day on the Lions Beach stage.
Our 2 main stages are located inside the historic Lakeview Hotel in Woody’s Pub, and at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 429, each a short walk apart on Broadway Avenue in downtown Wawa. Our 3rd stage is an open air venue located at Lion’s Beach, overlooking scenic Wawa Lake and just across the street from the Lakeview Hotel. ** YOU MUST BE 19+ TO ATTEND LICENSED EVENING EVENTS**
