The Sound of Music Festival is a FREE summer music festival that is diverse and appealing to all ages. Music presentations include Jazz, Folk, Rock, Pop, Big Band, Country, Blues, Latin, Celtic, Performing Arts, Children's Acts and more on five stages (plus our entertainment pods) along our beautiful waterfront and Burlington Downtown. New and emerging artists, Canadian icons and favourites of the past are included in the Festival line-up. Special features include the Grande Festival Parade, Saturday 11am, and a variety of performance venues and food and beverage areas. A small group of dedicated volunteers work hard year-round for this non-profit organization and a very large group of volunteers work hard to run the festival when it takes place to keep it FREE!
