Celebrating 50 Years of Kempenfest
In 1971 a handful of artists gathered in Barrie at the Formosa Springs Brewery to display their art on snow fencing and hopefully sell a few pieces. It was the birth of what would eventually be called Kempenfest. Fast forward 50 years and Kempenfest is now one of the largest outdoor arts, crafts, and music festivals in Ontario. 2022 is our third attempt at a 50th edition and it is shaping up to be a fantastic celebration of reconnecting with our community of art and music lovers.
