Sights & Sounds Festival


musical band


In the interest of continuing on the tradition of highlighting local talent, a brand new event has been added to the Sights & Sounds Festival lineup. Our Keg & Cork Craft Beer, Wine & Cider Festival welcomes local breweries, wineries and cideries, as well as local food vendors, to feature their products at a fun & sophisticated day that will be sure to satisfy your taste buds. The first 500 visitors will receive a collectable sampling mug included with the price of admission.

Old favourites are also being brought back, such as the 4th annual Soap Box Derby, our Kidz Talent Contest, and a Night Out at the Civic Theatre featuring Jamie Warren.

Over the years, Sights & Sounds has become a cornerstone in our community and the most talked about event of the year. This year’s festival will be no exception – we’re expecting over 6,000 visitors thanks to our loyal audience and proven formula for success.

Don’t forget to use #SightsSoundsHanover on social media to join in on the conversation!
