The ‘Northern Lights Folk Festival’ was first held in Bell Park in 1972. It was a free one-day music festival on one stage; needless to say it has grown exponentially since. Over the years NLFB has grown into a seasoned presenter of Canadian roots and modern music, and a catalyst for the energy of Northern Ontario’s artistic community.
Many would say 'that festival feeling' comes from the unexpected surprises and new discoveries that the event is known for. It's as much about witnessing some of the world's most acclaimed artists in action as it is about making new musical discoveries from a diverse roster of emerging talent.
