The Moose n’ Fiddle summer music festival is centred around professional and emerging musicians, folk bands, country singer/songwriters on the outdoor stage with curated artisans, craft beer tent, music workshops, and food trucks on-site creating a village-like atmosphere. An apt description of the Moose n’ Fiddle summer music festival is one big outdoor kitchen party that we hope people will want to come back to, again and again, animating Caliper Lake Provincial Park for one weekend in August year after year. The Moose n’ Fiddle summer music festival creates a distinctive platform for community arts and culture to flourish and thrive on the eastern shores of the Lake of the Woods in the Township of Sioux Narrows and Nestor Falls.
The Festival showcases all kinds of music for all kinds of people from folk, to Celtic, to blues, to root, to country and provide access to a crafters’ market, local food trucks, and fresh, handcrafted beer. An outdoor summer music festival is tailor-made for young and old, residents, summer residents, and tourists from near and far away. The Moose n’ Fiddle summer music festival at Caliper Lake Provincial Park brings the great outdoors together with fun and accessible popular music. We can’t wait to welcome everyone back again at the summer’s end.
