Pennybrook Festival


BY Alex Hickey

The 3rd annual Pennybrook Festival is coming up Saturday, August 24. We’re looking forward to presenting another fabulous roster of musicians from around the corner, across the province and from faraway Montreal.

If you have attended or heard about our previous festivals, you’ll know that we run a relaxed “backyard” festival with a laid-back atmosphere. The festival is not-for-profit and all proceeds go to pay musicians and cover material costs.

Favourite memories from 2012 include the frolicking kittens and Adam (from Fish and Bird) playing a duet between his fiddle and Pennybrook’s crowing rooster.

This year, we’re going to broaden the spectrum of events. In addition to an amazing music line-up, we have lantern-making and an Aikido demonstration planned.

The fun starts at 2pm and runs ’til around midnight at 4774 Highway 331. (Our rain location is the West Dublin Hall, 10 Huey Lake Road.) Tickets are $20 for a single pass, $30 for a couple/family pass (covers up to two adults and up to four kids). Tickets are available from Alex at the West Dublin Market and  at Can’t afford a ticket? We still have some spots available for volunteers (Sign up with

Rough camping will be available all weekend. Please note that this year we will not have a caterer on site. Food will be potluck so please bring enough for yourselves and, if you can, bring some to share, too.

Check out our website, our Facebook group or email for more details.

Look forward to seeing you there! And, does anyone know where we can borrow some kittens?
