Cambridge, Ontario

Please note: The online versions of the Mill Race Programme contain information about the Festival and the performers; however these online programmes do not contain the full schedule of performances. A list of the evening performers is given here. The programme, with a full schedule, can be purchased from advance locations for $5 (see below), or at the Festival.

Why? The Mill Race Festival is an entirely free event. The Board of Directors of the Mill Race Folk Society and the people working to present the Festival are all volunteers. Programme sales represent a significant portion of our revenue, and we believe that these would be affected should the schedule be posted here. So please accept our apologies, and buy a programme and/or make a donation during the weekend, to help keep this festival going. The programme is available for a small fee at every festival information booth. Please do not copy the programme!

We regret that time does not permit us to answer enquiries about the festival schedule. However, for those travelling to the festival from a distance, please be assured that all performers will be making multiple appearances over the weekend.
