Camping Option A - Trailer Comfort!

We get a lot of families and groups that like to camp in comfort and we highly recommend trailer rentals that will allow you to show up to your campsite with a proper full-size trailer already hooked up, set up and ready for the family. Our trailer partners do all the work to get you set up for when you arrive. Please note that these are two night rentals, so you'll need to sign up for both Friday and Saturday night. Here are the three easy steps you can do to get this arranged:

Camping Option B - Tent

Non-Camping Options - Local Cottages, Bed and Breakfasts, Hotels, AirBnb

Art on stage

 

Original, handcrafted up cycled textile art returns to Sandbanks Music Festival!   Off the heels of receiving the Helen Gregor Award as part of Craft Ontario’s 40th Anniversary, Suendrini once again brings her eco-friendly spotlight as part of her on-going body of work, Artful Waste, to the environmental concerns of climate change.

Art on Stage 2016 - Sandbanks

Sandbanks Music Festival 2016’s art on stage was inspired by Japanese artist of the Edo period, Katsushika Hokusai’s iconic pieces on Water. Suendrini created a five-piece customized art installation, titled, “Blue” that brought awareness to the powerful subject matter.

The projections in the The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) Environmental Outlook to 2050 suggest that freshwater availability will be strained unless new policies, awareness building and actions are taken to improve the current outlook.

About Us

The Sandbanks Music Festival is a partnership between the leadership and staff of Sandbanks Provincial Park and a small team of local music lovers, lead by Zunior.com's Dave Ullrich.   Living part-time in Milford, Dave paid his rock and roll duty touring Canada and the world as half of the 90's duo The Inbreds, learning about what makes a great music festival.  He also runs the Canadian online digital music store www.zunior.com, which celebrated its 10-year anniversary by presenting what was called the Sandbanks New Waves festival in 2014 featuring headliner Cuff The Duke. This was followed up by headliner Sarah Harmer in 2015. The event now known as Sandbanks Music Festival has featured headliners SLOAN (2016), and Great Lake Swimmers (2017). Zunior also presents the County Pop Music Festival at the Crystal Palace in downtown Picton, with headliners including Ron Sexsmith (2016), Joel Plaskett (2017), and Elliott Brood (2018).

The Sandbanks Music Festival team includes logistical leadership from Lori Farrington of the Prince Edward Learning Centre, operational ownership from Emily Cowan of Quench Creative, "gettin-er-done" by Isabelle Patton from Books & Company and strategic supervision from Helen Hawketts of Vintage Map Co. Key event staffing and support is provided by Robin Reilly/Agnese Bortolussi (Park Managers), and a team of Park Rangers from Sandbanks Provincial Park.
