What is Flourish?
The festival began in 2014, presenting small DIY music shows across the city. Since 2014, the festival and organization have evolved into a four-day festival presenting music, educational programming, visual art, theatre, community projects, public art and more. FLOURISH Festival accepts and presents all genres and art forms, aiming to challenge and encourage cultural and artistic development and appreciation. FLOURISH Festival is a labour of love and hard work and is run primarily by volunteers who work tirelessly to present emerging artists in the community, as well as on an international and national level.
In an annual study by Secret Frequency (formerly Canadian Women Working In Music) that grades gender representation on Canadian music festival stages, Flourish currently ranks among the top ten of 114 festivals surveyed.
