After being forced to cancel their sophomore event in 2021, Juno Award-winning folk-pop band The East Pointers announced this week that the Harvest Home Festival will return to P.E.I. this fall. 

Taking place at the iconic Rollo Bay Fiddle Grounds, this year’s festival will feature performances by The East Pointers along with a number of notable musicians, including Matt Andersen and The Big Bottle of Joy, Reeny Smith, Andy Shauf, Ria Mae, and many more. 

“Harvest Home Festival takes place on the same site as the original Rollo Bay Fiddle Festival, which has been running for 46 years. It’s a beautiful spot, and the idea was to present a festival featuring artists and bands that The East Pointers met along the road and have listened to their music on repeat throughout the year,” said Jake Charron of The East Pointers. “We’ve been lucky to play some amazing festivals around the world and are drawing inspiration from some of our favourites. We are a short walk to the beach and have camping available on site.”

Much like the inaugural event, this year’s festival will also feature plenty of local eats and drinks from food trucks and on-site vendors, craft beer courtesy of Copper Bottom Brewery, and fresh seafood by way of an oyster bar and an evening mussel boil.  

Harvest Home Festival takes place on September 23 and 24. Tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite. More information about the festival can be found online.
