The celebration of inclusivity and Indigenous culture just got louder! Wake the Giant Music Festival returns to the stage in Thunder Bay on September 18, 2021 with a mix of Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists. Why is this THE festival to check out this fall?
Here are 6 reasons Wake the Giant is the must-see event in Northern Ontario.
2. It was voted Best New Event and Best Fundraiser in 2019 by Walleye Magazine.
Wake the Giant is a real community builder, working to create stronger bonds, relationships, and understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Thunder Bay and the surrounding area. The festival amplifies the voices of Indigenous artists, bringing them new audiences and opportunities to connect with established artists.
The festival offers a warm positive vibe and an opportunity to help create a more welcoming and inclusive Thunder Bay. By bringing together Indigenous and non-Indigenous people from across Northwestern Ontario, festival organizers hope to create a platform for positive connections between the various cultures within Thunder Bay and the broader community. This provides an opportunity for First Nation communities and Indigenous people to connect with the city, and feel more welcome and safe.
3. There's more than just music
Festival-goers will also get to check out live art installations, cultural performances, and an Indigenous Craft Market.
5. There's fun merch.
Support the Wake the Giant movement with a t-shirt! Proceeds support the initiative while helping to spread the word.
6. It's covid safe
According to the festival, all ticket holders must agree to follow all Covid-19 health guidelines while at the event. In the event that Covid-19 restrictions require an event cancellation, tickets are fully refundable or you can hang on to them and use them next year.
