Why Support the 2024 Huron Waves Festival?

At a time when the world is facing many complex problems, why should you/your company consider supporting an arts festival?

Because the arts are fundamental to our humanity. They make us our best selves. They energize us, so that we can see the way forward.

The arts bring us together. They teach us empathy. They lift us up to see beauty. They strengthen communities, and drive revenue to local businesses. They open the eyes of children to new possibilities and learning.

The arts spark creativity and innovation, among the most important skills in today’s rapidly changing marketplace.

We must all work to solve the problems that plague our world.  But we need to make room for joy too.

You can help make it happen through your support.


It Takes a County...

It is remarkable how many people and organizations deserve credit for the success of the Festival.

Countless sponsors and donors gave generously, most notably Mac Voisin and Marcela Bahar, owners of The White Squirrel Golf Club & Restaurant in St. Joseph. Without the generosity of Mac and Marcela, community builders extraordinaire, it would not have been possible to bring GAIA to Exeter.


Huron Waves Festival is seeking Board Directors interested in filling future board member vacancies.

The ideal candidates are well-connected community or business leaders, with prior non-profit and/or charitable board experience, who are passionate about arts and culture and can leverage their professional skills and resources to positively impact the work of Huron Waves Festival.

Interested candidates are requested to submit a letter of interest and resume to Carolyn Young, General Manager


Making Music Together

Huron Waves knows what it takes to build a music festival – it takes friends, lots of friends.

Thank you for being our Friends!

Here are the individual private citizens, businesses, governments, arts agencies, community organizations, foundations and anonymous donors who are the Friends helping us to add our music to the culture and lifestyle of Ontario’s West Coast.
