It's like a big picnic. A music festival. A block party. A playground for all ages. An arts experience. And, this year, it’s a bit of a family reunion. A weekend of feeling fully connected to the things that matter most in our lives and community. A reason to get out and have a great time surrounded by great people.
Cultivate is The Feel Good Festival.
Tickets on sale now
Three days of feel good live music over two stages. Check out some of Canada's best acts, in all of their glory, all while overlooking the incomperable hills of Northumberland! Oh, and did I mention some after parties in Downtown Port Hope?
This year we have Joel Plaskett Emergency, Kathleen Edwards, Shad, Julian Talyor, Ramon Chicharron, Jerimie Albino, Kate Boothman and more!
The next announcement comes on August 12th.
Celebrate the season's abundance with local food and drink vendors, as well as a stage dedicated to culinary demonstrations!

Wow! Why wouldn't you?
We, like you, think strengthening community is important. We think the work being done here by farmers, artists, food service providers, entrepreneurs and volunteers is great work. We believe a platform is important and that gathering everyone in one space makes a place special. Our organisation, now in its 7th year, is fueled by our community - sponsorships, provincial funding, donations and volunteerism. We are 90% volunteer run and we couldn’t do that without you.
