The Waterfront is Alive With the Sound…Every year in June, Burlington’s Downtown and Waterfront plays host to Canada’s largest free music festival, when over 200,000 visitors listen in for an eclectic combination of new and emerging artists, past favourites and some of today’s most popular performers.

Music can be heard throughout the downtown for nine days straight, and there is no shortage of entertainment on every corner. The Downtown Streetfest, Children’s Village, carnival, Grande Festival Parade, vendors and free concerts on Father’s Day Weekend never cease to draw crowds of all ages to this award-winning festival.
