TD-Newmarket Music Festival
Good-Bye & Thanks to all!
The Newmarket Music Festival is sad to announce that 2018 was our final TD- Newmarket Music Festival. Organizing Ontario non-profit corporation Arts Music Festivals of York Region is now in the process of dissolution. The Management team and Board are disbanding.
TD-NMF team are grateful to our dedicated Sponsors, Volunteers and Interns who worked tirelessly to create the annual festival over 10 years since its inception in Aurora. Their steadfast support and volunteerism carried the festival through many wonderful changes and landmark achievements. The 2018 festival was an excellent finale complete with the “Seize the Summer with Us in Newmarket’ initiative which included weekend entertainment all summer long and special Tribute concerts every Thursday night. The festival was twice acknowledged as a Top 100 Festival in the Province of Ontario by Festivals & Events Ontario. We’re proud of the festival’s many achievements supporting the arts.
Organizers strove to support local entertainment, sharing fabulous talent and providing residents an opportunity to enjoy world-class live entertainment in their own backyard here in York Region. We worked to also inspire local youth to follow their musical dreams and to teach dozens of Interns how to run a big festival event. It was a pleasure working with everyone.
We were thrilled to have presented several dozen amazing entertainers like Justin Hines, Jackie & Kim Richardson, Spider Jones, Francesco Yates, Larnel Lewis, Joy Lapps, Colin James, Marshal Dane, Brass Transit, George and Alex St.Kitts, Stacey Kaniuk, Bernadette Connors, Glenn Marais, After Hours Big Band, Pauly & the Goodfellas, K.C. Roberts, Neil Chapman, Bob Burroughs, Brad Jones, David Howard, plus Tribute Bands from The Beatles, Blues Brothers & Prince to Bon Jovi and Shania – …and many, many more absolutely great entertainers over these 10 years!
We are grateful to everyone who assisted to create this annual festival of music, art and community fun. George, Sher and the Board of Directors of Arts Music Festivals York Region – Thank you.
