  • There will be a splendid variety of freshly prepared food available, so come hungry!

  • Camping and tenting available– bring your gear and sleep over!

  • Kitchen Jammers and Tailgate Pickers are encouraged, so bring your instruments and come and party with us!

  • The children’s area is supervised, so bring along the small fry.

  • For safety and litter reasons, no glass bottles are allowed on site. Please bring cans and use plastic cups.

  • As this is a very rural area with a shortage of malls, please note that if you don’t bring it, you won’t have it. This includes something to sit on (chairs, blankets), bug spray, sunscreen, hats, shade umbrellas etc.

  • All wristbands must be visibly worn for security.

The focus of this annual event is on the residents and relatives of Manitoulin Island, with an opportunity to meet people who live elsewhere, but who vacation here and even call Manitoulin their home away from home.

It’s the perfect time to enjoy the wind-up of the summer holiday: one last good time before school and work commence.

By enjoying this event in a setting of paradise– the gentle presence of forest wildlife, brilliant sunshine, thickets of cedar, water so clear and blue, invigorating fresh air– audiences will wonder if they haven’t been changed by it all.
