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 15 years, this unique annual event in Grey County, Ontario has treated audiences from near and far with three days of outstanding performances in a beautiful, rural setting on Georgian Bay.


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


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


SweetWater is also about engaging and enriching our  local community to spread the joy of music. From  musicians visiting local schools to displays by local string instrument makers to a community play along, SweetWater is dedicated to nurturing the next generation of musicians and audiences.
