Northern Lights Festival Boréal

The ‘Northern Lights Folk Festival’ was first held in Bell Park in 1972. It was a free one-day music festival on one stage; needless to say it has grown exponentially since. It remains Canada’s longest continually running outdoor music festival, holding its 45th edition in 2016. Taking place on the picturesque shores of Lake Ramsey in Bell Park in the heart of Sudbury, NLFB has presented a multitude of acclaimed artists in the past including: Serena Ryder, Stan Rogers, Broken Social Scene, Buffy Ste. Marie, Colin James, Joel Plaskett, Leahy, Hawksley Workman, Daniel Lanois, Tokyo Police Club, Jeff Healey, a young Eileen ‘Shania’ Twain, and many more. Northern Lights Festival Boréal continues to innovate each year with an eclectic program of indie, roots, world music, as well as visual arts, workshops, family entertainment and more, making it a unique celebration of community and culture. Every year, the festival awards the Jackie Washington award, recognizing outstanding contributions to arts and culture in Northern Ontario, with past recipients including Willie P. Bennett and Charlie Angus. Over the years NLFB has grown into a seasoned presenter of Canadian roots and modern music, and a lightning rod for the energy of Northern Ontario’s artistic community. Inventing tradition, fostering innovation and celebrating community since 1972.
