8th year for Guelph’s Fresh Water Jamboree Royal City Park!
September, 2015 – GUELPH, ONTARIO – The 2015 Fresh Water Jamboree Festival will be held at Royal City Park on Saturday September 12, 2015, from noon to eleven.
The Fresh Water Jamboree is an annual one-day music festival established to help raise awareness about “fresh water” in Wellington County, the province of Ontario and across Canada.
The festival is organized by “Be The Artist” (www.betheartist.ca), which is a Guelph based organization promoting musicians and environmental initiatives. The festival is held on Saturday, September 12th, 2015 at Royal City Park in Guelph. It is a family festival and will have kids activities. There will be presentations and music from 12noon till 11pm. We expect to have between 2000 and 3000 people at the event. Vendors and crafters as well as information booths will be stationed at the event. There are many local musicians and artistic communities involved in the event. Wellington Water Watchers will be presenting a detailed and informative talk on our Fresh Water Crisis here in Canada and around the world.
There will be Bands such as Shane Jacob Philips, Erick Traplin (kids performer) Ian Andrews and The Smokin’ Scoundrels, The Lullaby, The Record Players and more.
Our aim is to educate the public about water conservation before our fresh water is unusable. The UN suggests that each person needs 20-50 litres of water a day to ensure their basic needs for drinking, cooking and cleaning. There are Countries and many corporations exploiting Canada’s Reservoirs and Aquifers. Further more, there is a rapidly growing number of Countries that have little or no access to drinking water. We are continually undergoing local issues. We hope to encourage people to act Locally and think Globally.
Sponsors: Opirg, Water Wagon, Paul Lamb Woodworks, Full Spectrum Fitness, Herc’s Nutrition, Zehrs Eramosa, Griesbach Contracting, Two Plus Pizza, Freshco, Dino’s, Canadian – Tire Stone Road, The Water Store, Planet Bean, Be The Artist and many individuals have donated.
