The Hillside Festival is a 33-year-old grassroots organization that showcases indie and world music and celebrates creativity in every aspect of its work. Through showcases, workshops, and courses, we promote altruism, equality & environmental leadership.

Plant courage. Harness hope.

For over 20 years, we’ve been washing all our dishes, running buses from downtown out to the Island, and digging compost holes right into the land on which we celebrate. Nine areas of the festival operate with award-winning initiatives: hospitality, transportation, power, programming, water, promotion, waste management, technical production, and site infrastructure.

We recently invented a solar water heater to get our dishes clean and we’ve received 8 different awards for our greening initiatives, including the Grand River Conservation Authority award for “a sustained record of achievement over an extended period of time.”
