A celebration of Great Lakes Voices
June 23rd - August 12th, 2017
Lake Ontario Waterkeeper’s vision for a swimmable, drinkable, fishable Lake Ontario began from the shores of Kingston and Wolfe Island. To celebrate the place where it started and the people who made it happen, Lake Ontario Waterkeeper is hosting the first Kingston & Wolfe Island Culture Festival to celebrate Great Lakes voices through story and song.
