Forge Fest is a multi-venue/stage, wristbanded festival and the 2020 edition will be held in Tillsonburg, Ontario, on July 25th, 2020. This year’s event marks the festival’s third year and will once again showcase local, national and international artists, musicians and comedians with all proceeds going to the Canadian Mental Health Association Oxford (CMHA Oxford).

This year’s lineup features Kevin Seconds (7Seconds), Jonah Matranga (onelinedrawing, Far) Danbert NoBacon (Chumbawamba), The Matadors, K-Man & the 45s, and forty more acts. Fans can purchase wristbands for only $20 and gain access to 8 venues spread across downtown Tillsonburg including Sammy Krenshaw’s (upstairs/downstairs) Paper Suitcase Photography, Boston Pizza, Station Arts Centre, Kesley’s Roadhouse, and The Copper Mug. Last year the all-ages and licensed festival was able to donate over $3500 to the charity.
