Whether you’ve participated in one of our morning workshops or not, come join the Fresh Beats Rhythm Parade. Everyone gathers at the Clock Park at 11:35am bringing their own rhythm instruments, if they have them, and wearing their finery, a costume or just a wacky hat if so inclined.

Many folks have claimed that our Fresh Beat Rhythm Parade is one of the highlights of their weekend. It’s at the very heart of the Deep Roots Music Festival. At NOON … the parade in all its glorious colour and joyous noise begins. Many people walk or dance. Wheelchairs, bikes, wagons and strollers are welcome. All motorized traffic is stopped while the parade goes on.

All motorized traffic is stopped while the parade goes on.

Leaving from Clock Park, the parade proceeds east on Main Street, turns left and goes north on Central Avenue, turns left again moving west on Front Street. A final left and a hop, skip and a jump south on Elm Street will bring us back to Clock Park and the Just Us! Festival Tent. Please stay in costume and gather for a GROUP PICTURE right after the parade finishes. (Route subject to change.)



Deep Roots Music Cooperative

The DRM Cooperative holds concerts, fund-raisers, benefits, community meetings and learning events throughout the year so plenty of volunteer opportunities arise on an ongoing basis. We are always excited to have more people join us so don’t hesitate to come and check us out.

The Deep Roots Music Festival is our largest annual event. The festival is community-based, supported by both the Town of Wolfville and Acadia University, and built on countless hours of volunteerism by a stable base of over 100 volunteers, and on in-kind and financial support from virtually all sectors of the Valley community. The festival is held in September when Acadia University students are back on campus and collaboration with Acadia always enriches the quality of the Deep Roots educational experience.

Our Mission is to create meaningful connections between cultures, community groups, artists and audiences by offering music-related events, programs, and an annual festival.

This event is part of a hub:
