BIG Thank you to all who made Buskerfest an outstanding success


On behalf of the Kemptville Buskerfest Organizing Committee and the Old Town Kemptville BIA, we would like to sincerely thank everyone who was involved in making the 2022 Kemptville Buskerfest Presented By Urbandale Construction such an overwhelming success.

Through the financial and in-kind contributions of our major sponsors and partners such as: the Municipality of North Grenville, Urbandale Construction, Valley Eats, Xplornet, Coba Studios, Livestream Junkies, Stevens Creek Shutter Co., Jamming Around Man Productions, the North Grenville Times, the North Grenville Curling Club and others, we had the resources needed to put on a community event that attracted thousands to Downtown Kemptville.

Free community events like this are only possible through the efforts of volunteers who perform a wide variety of essential tasks, from web design to answering visitor questions to garbage pickup to the actual organizing and planning of the event. We feel blessed to have such an amazing group of event-day volunteers who did everything possible to provide the best possible experience for all visitors to Downtown Kemptville. Thanks Buske-teers!

“We truly wish that we could thank everyone individually for their contribution to Buskerfest, but that would be a full-time job in itself. Literally thousands of hours of volunteer work went into organizing and hosting Buskerfest. Our team took time off from work, sacrificed time with family and friends, and on many nights stayed up to the wee hours to put on the best event that we possibly could; and based on the feedback we’ve received, we feel we succeeded. We’re hoping that other passionate community builders will join us for next year so we can make the 2023 Buskerfest even better!” Sierra Jones-Martel – Chair of the Kemptville Buskerfest Organizing Committee.

The members of the Kemptville Buskerfest Organizing Committee also deserve individual recognition for their considerable commitment and sacrifice in bringing Buskerfest from vision to reality. Thanks to Sierra JonesMartel, Meagan Cumming, Mary-Anne Leang, Amanda Leang, Herb Cloutier, Ashley Sloan, Megan McDonald and Deron Johnston. Though not an official member of the committee, Tammy Hurlbert was also a major contributor to Buskerfest.

The Kemptville Buskerfest is a free one-day community festival hosted in beautiful Downtown Kemptville amongst a diverse business community of personal service providers, foodservice businesses, boutique retail shops and more. This community event features local & professional street performers, unique vendors, delicious food options, family-friendly activities and much more.
