A COMMUNITY INITIATIVE
Lucknow’s Music in the Fields was born from an idea in 2008 to have a world class festival with a small town feel in our hometown of Lucknow, ON. Situated at the Lucknow Kinsmen soccer fields, with camping space provided by local landowners, we were able to offer a festival/camping experience. The event has grown from 1200 patrons in 2009 to over 8000 in recent years, supporting by an expanding village of campers.
One of the core values of the festival has been the community nature of the event. It has developed from a Kinsmen event to a community event. With the support of the other service clubs and community, its success is built upon the cooperative and supportive nature of the community. Blessed with an area is very volunteer oriented, filling over 600 volunteer spots has never been an issue. . Without our volunteers to help you to your campsite, serve a drink or just answer your questions we would not be able to offer you the festival experience that you/we expect. Many thanks to our volunteers.
In late 2015 we were presented with an opportunity to purchase a farm in Lucknow. Initially in 2016 we used this area for camping and after much work and improvements we are planning to move the festival/camping experience to what we call Graceland as an ode to the former owner Grace Hopf. We are very excited about this opportunity and anticipate that it will be appreciated by you. In association with our producers, TNR Productions and many other partners we strive to bring the best experiences to our festival goers. Ongoing improvements to the festival are of prime importance to us and we always do our best to improve your entire experience. We strive to offer a safe, fun environment for our festival goers. For our festival participants we offer camping, shuttles around town, food/drink/merchandise, fantastic atmosphere and last but not least the best country music festival they’ve ever been to.
We are very excited that the festival is now a mainstay and we look forward to the opportunity to invite and host you in Lucknow, ON this coming August for the last big party of the summer.
The Lucknow Kinsmen are a completely non-profit community organization and all monies raised by initiatives like this go to support charities, hospitals, schools, local and regional projects that help keep small town Ontario small town but with a big town feel. With your help going into our 9th year we have been able to donate in excess of 1 million dollars.
