Sound of Music Festival
Posted: May 30, 2018

So much music, so much fun. June 9th – 17th, 2018.

Sound of Music has exploded in size since it’s modest beginnings in 1980 as a marching band parade. Operating as a not-for-profit corporation, the organization stages Canada’s Largest Free Music Festival every year in June. Due to the passion, love and commitment of hundreds of volunteers, a small staff, and a roster of generous sponsors and suppliers music takes over Burlington Downtown and Waterfront.

As the region’s largest music event we support an eclectic combination of new and emerging artists, past favourites and some of today’s most popular performers.

Music can be heard throughout our downtown for nine days straight. 

From our ticketed Kick-off Concert, to our Sound of Music Club Series that brings local talent to the spotlight one show at a time, and of course our Grande Festival Parade, an ongoing tradition since 1980, there’s no shortage of entertainment on every corner. The Downtown Streetfest, Children’s Village, carnival, vendors and FREE concerts on Father’s Day Weekend never cease draws crowds of all ages, from near and far.

Sound of Music Festival is a part of Burlington. 

The Festival brings people together and creates memories and traditions that last a lifetime. Ask anyone in town and they’re likely to have a Sound of Music story. The Festival remains an annual event and is the region’s biggest event of the year, generating 12.5 million in economic activity and playing host to well over 200,000 visitors.
