sandbanks music festivalThe Sandbanks Music Festival is one of the most anticipated events of Prince Edward County in Ontario, Canada. That being said, it’s crucial that if you plan on attending the festival, you book a place to stay as soon as you buy your tickets. One of the best places in the area to stay during the Sandbanks Music Festival is Sandbanks Summer Village Cottages, a resort featuring two-bedroom cottages with all the amenities you’d have at home, including a view of either the nearby meadows, woodlands, or lake. While you’re spending time at Sandbanks Summer Village Cottages (when you’re not at the Sandbanks Music Festival, of course), you’ll have the opportunity to explore some of the nearby wineries and breweries, and even participate in some of the resort’s planned activities, which are fun for the whole family.

The festival is a family-friendly event that will be held on Saturday, September 14 at Sandbanks Provincial Park in Prince Edward County. The event is known for its live music, but it also features general entertainment that will be fun for the whole family. 

Music at the Festival

The Sandbanks Music Festival will be host to musicians from all over Canada, including Lava Hay, Siobhan Bodrug, and Moscow Apartment. The event will be headlined by Grapes of Wrath, who will be coming into town all the way from Vancouver, British Columbia.

Kids Events

Since this is a family-friendly event, there will be plenty for your little ones to enjoy after you all take in some of the live music the Sandbanks Music Festival has to offer. The event offers a special Kids Zone Tent, which will allow your kids to enjoy activities such as Costume Creations and Face Painting. Both of these events will let your kids show their true colors, and sport a beautiful temporary disguise, or create their own unique costume to wear around the Sandbanks Music Festival. There will also be a special kids parade during the festival that your youngsters will have the chance to participate in.

Art on the Stage

The Sandbanks Music Festival isn’t just a showcase for music but visual art as well. The event will be featuring an on-stage exhibition of eco-friendly artist, Suendrini’s cloth artwork. This will be the fourth year that Suendrini has adorned the Sandbanks Music Festival stage with her cloth art, which has the goal of showcasing nature’s biodiversity.
