Matlock Festival of Music, Art and Nature

The 4th annual Matlock Festival of Music, Art and Nature invites all to attend the Matlock Festival of Music, Art and Nature August 23-25, 2013. The 2013 line-up includes a wide variety of Manitoban talent including: Hollerin' Pines, Inna Riddim, Jake Chenier, Jason Ross band, Robert Allan Wrigley Band, Sebastian Owl, The Brothers Landreth and many more local indie, folk, and bluegrass artists. This signature non-profit family friendly festival is a great time for folks of all ages and abilities. Music and activities vary from traditional to contemporary – from fruit preservation and yoga class and banjo picking – from kids games and art to a farmer and artisan market. The 45-acre site is a pristine sustainable habitat and ongoing restoration project – a perfect prairie combination of forest, grassland and very important wetland habitats. Professional acts, bluegrass, old time and alternative music workshops, young performers, Sunday morning gospel and open mic are part of a great festival that encourages participation and good clean fun! Matlock Festival promotes local artists and a welcoming environment for local amateur artists to grow and participate in a youth mentorship program with established artists. We provide a fair trade and eco-friendly environment. This year we are excited to announce that the Charter for Compassion (www.charterforcompassion.org) has recognized Matlock festival as a compassionate festival. There will be artists/vendors with funky art, jewelry, clothing, food, giftware, instruments, and much, much more available for purchase. This non-profit community based festival is run completely on grants, donations and ticket sales. Day passes are $10 and only $25 for a weekend pass (children 12 and under are free. Camping is $10 per night. The famous Matlock beach and pier is only a 5 minute walk so don’t forget your bathing suit.
