Roots North Music Festival
A Festival to Remember
Roots music can refer to several styles or genres in music, but to us it’s music that is firmly rooted in a place of honest expression and emotion. It’s music that travels, shares, and connects, while honouring the past and bravely moving forward. It’s our mission to bring together a wide range of artists and people who share this vision for a weekend of great live music.
Historic Downtown Orillia, Ontario, Canada serves as the backdrop for the music festival. Our headline shows will take place at the beautifully restored.
St. Pauls Centre at 62 Peter Street North.
Artists perform on Friday and Saturday evening in our comfortable soft-seat theatre.
Before each performance, and during intermissions, we encourage our guests to explore the on-site art market. A selection of merchandise from our performing artists is also available in addition to one of a kind
Roots North Music Festival logo’d memorabilia, some of which you get the opportunity to design and create on-site as part of our dedication to the arts.
