In September each year, the spirit of community comes alive all across Ontario’s Highlands when the Festival of Small Halls rolls in. Through its five years, the festival has continually grown while staying true to its mission of bringing both big names in Canadian music and local performers to intimate venues. Concert-goers can expect a solid mix of local music-lovers and out-of-towners coming together to appreciate the unbeatable acoustics of heritage churches, agricultural halls, and gathering places.
