Wake the Giant Festival in support of Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School, Thunder Bay - Sept. 14, 2019

Please see below link to the flyer for additional information about the festival and sponsorship opportunities. Thank you for your support!

Planning is underway for the Wake the Giant Music Festival. The aim of the festival will be to form stronger bonds, relationships and understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities in Thunder Bay and the surrounding area. This will provide an opportunity for First Nations communities to connect with the community and feel more welcome and safe when they come to the city while offering an opportunity for people from Thunder Bay to become more familiar with First Nations people and their culture.

The festival will be a celebration of cultures with a spotlight on Indigenous culture and music featuring Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists. There will be art installations and cultural booths. The Downie Wenjack Foundation will bring a national spotlight to the event. This would be a great reason to travel to Thunder Bay to visit the beautiful area and city and take in the festival at the same time!

Sponsorship opportunities from $1,000-$20,000 are available. Contact project co-ordinator Sean Spenrath at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 807-629-2614. Thank you for your continued support of DFC.
