Cultivate will use this opportunity to announce the details of their 2022 festival on September 23rd to 25th. Early Bird Festival Passes will be available exclusively to those in attendance on the day of.

“I couldn’t be happier to make LAUNCH! happen,” says Executive Director Jeff Bray. “It’s been nearly three years since we got together as a community to celebrate in Cultivate style and I think it’s safe to say that we need it.”

Cultivate Community actively strengthens regional communities by engaging local citizens in the discovery and celebration of arts and culture via grassroots leadership, creative partnerships and innovative artistic programming.

Their flagship, award winning, event, Cultivate Festival, arrived on the scene in 2015 and has been growing with the community ever since. Built on the values of sustainability, equity and inclusion, Cultivate Festival prides itself on celebrating what’s happening in our own backyard in a world class way.

This event was made possible by funding from the provincial and federal government grants to support arts and culture during COVID, specifically, the ReConnect Ontario Fund and the Support for Workers in Live Arts and Music Stream through Canadian Heritage.

Through the generous sponsorship from the Rotary Club of Port Hope, children are free for this event.
