Markham Village Music Festival goes virtual

The Markham Village Music Festival returns for its 44th year.

It will feature over 40 performances including emcee Aliya Kanani from Second City, four-time Juno Award winner Fred Penner, Ron Hawkins of Lowest of the Low, and a Beatbox showcase as well as local music and dance performers.

The festival will also feature a virtual vendor village to help support the many businesses and community groups that have partnered with the festival over the years.

It will also showcase Historic Markham Moments with our Town Crier celebrating Markham’s rich history.

The festival takes place June 18th from 6-10 p.m. and June 19th from 4-10 p.m.

The festival will be livestreamed to promote social distancing, and boost morale in these challenging times.

In addition, the organizers are using the festival as an opportunity to fundraise for the Unison Benevolent Fund in support of Canadian musicians and the Markham and Stouffville Food Banks.
