The Rotary Burlington Fall Music Festival www.rotarymusicfest.org
Oakville had not had its own music festival for more than 50 years. In 2015, a group of Oakville teachers decided it was time to bring the music back home. From the start, the founders wanted to create something that was focused on the joy of singing, rather than competition. Thus began the Oakville Vocal Arts Festival.
