The Northern Lights Folk Festival, first held in Bell Park in 1972, was a free one-day music festival on one stage that has grown exponentially since. It is one of Canada’s longest continually running outdoor music festivals, holding its 50th edition in 2022 on the picturesque shores of Ramsey Lake in Bell Park, in the heart of Sudbury. Over the years, NLFB has grown into a seasoned presenter of Canadian roots and modern music, and a lightning rod for the energy of Northern Ontario’s artistic community that invents tradition, fosters innovation and celebrates community.

“A Canadian treasure – NLFB is a great inclusive place to experience world class music and make memories. Also important, it maintains its character as a fun and safe place to bring our families.”
