After 21 wonderful years as Almonte’s longest running festival, it does not appear possible to organize the 22nd edition.

We have a small and enthusiastic group of very capable volunteers on the organizing committee, but no leadership. We have no Festival Chair.

We DO have leadership and volunteers for Finances, but need people to learn and take on the other positions that are now available such as Vendors, Promotions and Publicity, Volunteers, Site, Fundraising, Administration and Employee Supervision. We also have some great volunteers for the Artistic Committee.

With no person at the head to lead our festival, and no leads in the above-mentioned positions, we cannot continue.

We will meet on Tuesday, September 12th at 6:30pm at the Almonte Old Town Hall to close the festival if no one steps forward to help. We will have music to entertain you and some food.

If you think you are able to step into one of the key roles, please let us know before ( or during the meeting.
