Roots North Music Festival

Roots music can refer to several styles or genres in music, but to us its music that is firmly rooted in a place of honest expression and emotion. Its music that travels, shares, and connects, while honouring the past and bravely moving forward. Its our mission to bring together a wide range of artists and people who share this vision for a weekend of great live music.

Historic Downtown Orillia, Ontario, Canada serves as the backdrop for the music festival. Our headline shows take place at the beautifully restored St. Pauls Centre at 62 Peter Street South.

In addition to our ticketed main event performances, several businesses in our Downtown team up to provide FREE live music shows within their shops and restaurants. Be sure to explore and join us.

Music, shopping and entertainment surround you as you explore Downtown Orillia during the Roots North Music Festival.
