Roots music can refer to several styles or genres in music, but to us it’s music that is firmly rooted in a place of honest expression and emotion. It’s music that travels, shares, and connects, while honouring the past and bravely moving forward. It’s our mission to bring together a wide range of artists and people who share this vision for a weekend of great live music. Welcome to the Roots North Music Festival in historic Downtown Orillia.
Music, shopping and entertainment surround you as you explore Downtown Orillia during the Roots North Music Festival. In addition to our ticketed main event performances at the St. Pauls Centre, several businesses along Mississauga Street have teamed up to provide free live music shows within their shops and restaurants. Be sure to explore and join us.
