Welcome to Banjofest Midland, situated in beautiful downtown Midland and hosted by Midland Cultural Centre. This festival offers banjo players of all ages and skill levels to participate in workshops, jam sessions, concerts and all things banjo-based.
The workshops are designed to be diverse in genre, lively, and educational. The hosts are skilled, dynamic workshop leaders, catering to every banjo skill level from beginner to advanced. Midland Banjofest offers a unique, one-of-a-kind experience for every type of banjo aficionado! Banjofest will be an exhilarating experience which we believe every Banjo lover should experience!
Building on Ian Molesworth's successes with Banjofest Guelph, we thought it was time to start one in Midland, with his kind help and blessing. As Banjofest continues to grow annually, we believe we can attract banjo enthusiasts from across the province and beyond. We are honoured to be able to host this annual event for so many like minded, truly wonderful people every March! We are excited to provide the Banjo community with a festival in the Heart of Georgian Bay. Bring your friends and make new ones at Banjofest!
