We are very excited to announce that Wild Oats and Notes will be making a triumphant return to the Schultz Farmstead this summer!
It has been a while since we’ve been able to get together at the farm and listen to live music, so bear with us as we get up and running. We’re hoping there won’t be any significant bumps along the way.
We are actively keeping an eye on all the public health measures as they relate to large outdoor gatherings, and we’ll try to keep you up to date on how the Festival is coming together, and what you can expect.
For now all we can say is save the date, and we hope to see you this summer!
Hope you’re keeping safe, sound, and high spirited.
When things unraveled last year we were optimistic that the Covid situation would simmer down enough that the summer of ’21 would be a Festival Year. Unfortunately, that has not been the case.
So, to cut right to the chase, there won’t be a Wild Oats and Notes Festival this year. Although this news is disappointing and sad to share, we are looking to host our next festival from June 30th to July 2nd, 2022.
We’re more committed than ever to ensuring that the Tofield School Jam Club we help support continues to thrive. As many of you know, the program plays a vital part in educating and fostering a love of music in the next generation. 100% of donations go directly to the Jam Club program! If you see fit to donate, you can find more info here.
We want to let everyone know how much we appreciate your support and understanding in the weeks following the cancellation of the 2020 Wild Oats and Notes Music Festival.
We also wanted to update you on the School music program that Wild Oats and Notes helps to support. As you may know, the School Music Program gives Tofield students an avenue to explore and develop their musical skills. Part of the proceeds from every Wild Oats and Notes Festival goes towards supporting the program and we’re hoping to keep that tradition alive even in the absence of a festival.
If you’re interested in helping us support the School Music Program you can donate here . 100% of donations will go directly to the program!
Wild Oats and Notes returns every two years to the Schultz farmstead in the Ketchamoot district, just south of Tofield, Alberta. Close to a thousand friends and relatives descend upon the yard in celebration of live music, agriculture, and all things rural. The festival is a non-profit venture that invests net proceeds into the local community in a number of ways.
Wild Oats and Notes cultivates a taste for live performances while embracing the values of rural living and respect for the land. It’s also a hell of a lot of fun.
