SweetWater - Music that Inspires, Challenges, and Connects

The SweetWater Music Festival showcases the best musicians from across Canada and beyond performing classical, jazz, and contemporary music.


For over 18 years, this unique annual event in Grey Bruce, Ontario has treated audiences to three days of outstanding performances in a beautiful, rural setting on Georgian Bay.


Throughout the year, SweetWater’s special concert events spotlight some of Canada’s top musicians as well as emerging, aspiring artists.


Audiences are treated to one-of-a-kind, intimate and cutting-edge musical experiences that engage the mind and spirit.


SweetWater also captivates and enriches our local community by spreading the joy of music. From musicians visiting local schools to an annual community play along, SweetWater is dedicated to nurturing the next generation of musicians and audiences.
