The Live from the Rock Folk Festival is an annual music and arts festival located on the beautiful shore of Lake Superior in Red Rock, Ontario. Since the Live from the Rock Blues & Folk Society started dreaming up the first festival, with the inaugural event held in August of 2003, Live from the Rock has become an annual tradition for over 2,000 music lovers from around the region, the country and the world. It is a grassroots festival run almost 100 per cent by volunteers and, without the support of approximately 200 dedicated volunteers and the Township of Red Rock each year, the festival could not exist.
Live from the Rock offers world class music on daytime workshop-style stages, as well as an evening concert lineup on the main Festival Stage. The first notes can be heard floating across the lake and don't stop until the Festival Stage closes the weekend on Sunday evening.
We are supported by a wonderful group of businesses, organizations and individuals both locally and from the around the region. Whether it's a cash donation, an in-kind contribution or a sponsorship, the festival would not be possible without this assistance.
