Clearview Township is the successful recipient of $17,245 in Experience Ontario 2024 funding, provided by the Government of Ontario. The funding will support the Small Halls Festival 10th Anniversary Celebration Concerts this upcoming September.

The aptly named Celebration Concerts are planned to commemorate and celebrate 10 years of the Small Halls Festival. First hosted in 2014 to showcase the beloved ‘Small Halls’ (community centres) at the heart of the hamlets and villages in Clearview Township, the Festival was named Ontario’s Best New Festival in 2015 and since 2017, has been listed on the Top 100 Festivals in Ontario by Festivals and Events Ontario.

“The success that the Small Halls Festival has achieved this past 10 years is a testament to the strength of the Clearview community,” said Mayor Doug Measures. “We are proud that the festival experience brings together volunteers, residents and visitors and look forward to showcasing our small halls to a wider audience with this Experience Ontario funding.”

The Small Halls Festival Celebration Concerts will take place from Sept. 26- 29 with featured headliners performing at four of the small halls on one weekend: Roger Harvey will perform at Nottawa Memorial Community Centre on Thursday, Sept. 26; My Son the Hurricane (pictured) will be at The Duntroon Hall Friday on Friday, Sept. 27; Danny Michel will play Creemore Station on the Green on Saturday, Sept. 28; and Sonshine and Broccoli will be at Sunnidale Corners Community Centre on Sunday, Sept. 29.

“With funding provided by the Government of Ontario, we are excited to showcase a diverse range of performers for the Celebration Concerts. With this line-up, we expect sold-out shows to welcome many visitors to Clearview Township,” said community, culture and tourism coordinator Amanda Murray.

Tickets will go on sale Tuesday, June 4 at with discounted Early Bird pricing until July 22. Watch the website for additional festival events to be announced in July.
