Cultivate Festival

Our events are 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.


We're taking all that's great about our summer event and delivering a new series from within the beautiful Capitol Theatre in downtown Port Hope.

Hibernate Festival will celebrate diverse voices on a historic stage with music, local food and drink, collaborative art installations and a feel-good vibe that is next to none. Think of all the great things that Cultivate Festival has to offer. Now imagine all of that in the beautiful Capitol Theatre in Downtown Port Hope.

Welcome to Hibernate! We'll be bringing you four shows over four months to help keep you cozy and filled with inspiration during the coldest time of the year!

Road To Cultivate

For Cultivate, local food means more than an efficient way to fill your belly. It’s about strengthening community and local economy. It’s about knowing where your food comes from and the farmer who put their time and effort into it.

In this guide you'll find farm gate sales stands, farmer's markets, unique farm experiences and farm-to-table food service. The growing season is springing to life, so throw on your boots and start the car!
