The Home County Folk League, a non-profit organization, was formed in 1973 to produce the Home County Folk Festival.
For over forty now years, the Home County Folk League has produced an outdoor summer music & arts/crafts festival in Victoria Park, a beautiful heritage park in downtown London, Ontario.
In 2012, the festival was renamed the Home County Music & Art Festival to better reflect the breadth of musical genres presented at the festival and to bring focus to the craft artisans.
On July 14, 15, 16, 2017, the Home County Music & Art Festival will celebrate it's 44th year of being London’s premier summer festival. It takes place in downtown London’s beautiful Victoria Park, which is readily accessible to the public with paved walkways and public washrooms.
This ‘admission by donation’ event features over 25 of Canada’s best roots, traditional and indie folk/pop acts, 100 Canadian craft artisan's, and 30 food vendors from a variety of global cultures. We feature a concert stage, 2 workshop stages, a children’s stage, a community open stage and in the Home County Craft Beer Garden, we will feature the new Emerging Artist Stage. These stages run from noon – 6 pm on Saturday and Sunday. Evening main-stage concerts at the Kiwanis Memorial band-shell run from 6 pm –11 pm on Friday & Saturday, and 6 pm – 9:00 pm on Sunday.
