Nearby London's longest-running free music festival — featuring traditional and contemporary Canadian folk performers, regional crafters and artisans, and plenty of food — takes place July 20-22 in beautiful Victoria Park.
Home County is in its 39th year of bringing Canada’s finest songwriters to three afternoon workshop stages. Then, sit back and enjoy the evening main-stage concerts at the Kiwanis Memorial Bandshell.
Home County is also renowned for its juried craft show showcasing 120 Canadian artisans. Craft booths include pottery, glass, jewelry, fine art, textiles, metal, wood, photography and more. The festival also features 30 food vendors offering a variety of cuisines. And, for the second year, a Green Village will showcase innovative organic and sustainable products.
This fun-filled family festival does not charge an admission fee, but visitors are encouraged to donate a minimum of $5 per day. Music programming will take place from 6 to 11 p.m. on Friday, noon to 11 p.m. Saturday and noon to 8:30 p.m. Sunday.
