We need your help.

We need your help to continue bringing some of the best bands, comedians, and performers in Canada to our stage, and even more importantly, to ensure that the next generation of Ottawans can make memories and share experiences at the festival. 

We are partnering with the National Congress of Italian-Canadians Foundation to launch our first-ever Giving Campaign.

Each donation enters you into our Prize Draws happening throughout our Giving Campaign!
