Charitable Organizations Ticket Program

Every year, The Team Behind Bluesfest donates over $20,000 in tickets to RBC Bluesfest, CityFolk and the Ontario Festival of Small Halls to local charities to help them in their fundraising activities. The tickets are commonly seen at galas and events around the city in silent auctions, and as raffle or door prizes. To be considered as a donation recipient, send us an email to with details about how you would use the tickets in your fundraising efforts and from which festival(s) you would like to request tickets.

Regretfully we have limited donation allotments available, and cannot grant every request.
