Collingwood Festival Announces Family Day ROCK & RUMBLE, Concerts With Painting Sessions, and More

Collingwood Summer Music Festival has announced additional activities enhancing an already exhilarating schedule.

The family day line-up is now in place with music which will please both young and older music fans. On Sunday July 11, the day begins at 10am with FREE musical activities for preschoolers taking place outdoors on the lawn, helping them to learn the building blocks of music. In the afternoon the LIVE DRIVE-IN concert outdoors stars living folk legend Jerry Gray from The Travellers, leading the audience through the song This Land Is Your Land among other favourites. He is followed by a local favourite, Shipyard Kitchen Party - the folk/pop singing group inspired by Canadiana. The evening closes with a DRIVE-IN CINEMA screening of 2018 Canadian Screen Award Winner "movie "Rumble: The Indians Who Shaped the World" outdoors, preceded by a live discussion with the movie's producer, Stevie Salas.

Daniel Vnukowski, Artistic Director of the Collingwood Summer Music Festival is thrilled to be working with an indoor commercial film production crew, a sound engineer and outdoor film projection team. He's excited about the creative possibilities this has brought to fruition for this year's performances:
"This year, we are embracing technology in ways we never thought possible! We are excited to partner with two amazing local painters - Bill Franks and Shandelle McCurdie, whose pre-recorded painting sessions will be projected onto the big screen behind two of our live concerts this summer. One of our musical artists will be connecting live from Rome and we're also experimenting with time-lapse photography for unique cinematic visuals. It will be a year to remember!"
