GAWII WIIKAA GA-NENDIMISII MUSIC & ARTISAN FESTIVAL

Deshkan Ziibiing (Chippewas of the Thames First Nation) joins forces with Music Tourism and the Western Fair District to bring a lineup of incredible Indigenous artists and makers to the Western Fair District for the Gawii Wiikaa Ga-Nendimisii (Never Ever Forget Me) Music and Artisan Festival, November 18-20, 2022.

Multiple days of programming will feature live music from DJ Shub, Halluci Nation, and Tom Wilson!

"Gawii Wiikaa Ga-Nendimisii will be an Indigenous music, art, and culture celebration in honour of our residential school survivors and those who never returned home." We hope that attendees will learn more about the festival's important cause and, as a result, never forget that Every Child Matters. All proceeds from this event will benefit Deshkan Ziibiing's Save the Barn initiative, which will culminate in the establishment of a Museum and Cultural Learning Centre." - Chief Jacqueline French

An Indigenous-led market showcasing traditional skills and art forms will accompany the concerts. Throughout the weekend, the market will feature Indigenous artisans, vendors, and programming. Click here for more event details.
