    We win some, we get nominated for some

    Horn tooting is never good. In fact, most tooting is very bad in today’s society. But having said that, let us allow us to toot our own horn for a moment because we work very hard at a lot of different things and sometimes we receive recognition for such efforts and we think it will make you feel good to know that we feel pretty good about ourselves. For example, here are some of the plaudits we’ve received recently:

    1. The International Clearwater Award (photographed above), “presented to a festival that prioritizes environmental stewardship and demonstrates public leadership in sustainable event production.” Boy, did we win the hell out of this one! This was presented to us in February 2019 at the Folk Alliance International conference in Montreal. Tom Power of the CBC radio show, q, was the MC/host.
    2. The Festivals & Events Ontario Best Greening of a Festival Award, which was presented to us in London, Ontario in March 2019. We are happy to offer other festivals advice about how they can be greener too. After all, we’re all in this together.
    3. Finalist for the Premier’s Award for Excellence in the Arts. This is the second year we have been a finalist. Last year, Debajehmujig Storytellers won in the arts organization category. And this year, imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts festival won. Congrats to them!


    Systema Solar, just going for a very normal stroll

    “[Hillside is] a beautiful, family-friendly environment; musicians for all tastes, artists, vendors; an awesome venue to celebrate peace and friends. This is a standout event not only because of the artists and organizers, but its Earth-First mentality blows other events out of the water.”

    — Kimberly Peace, Hillside-goer
