Our USA Friends
Hello USA Friends! We are less than one hour away from the border when you cross at the Peace Bridge, just past Buffalo, NY. The drive is easy and a lot closer than you’d think. We’d love to see you here!
Where we are:
What they’re saying:
“Best free music festival in all of Canada with excellent choices of bands and activities. A truly community based festival, superbly run and organized!”
“It's FREE and it's OUTDOORS (it's not too overcrowded) & high quality of entertainers (some very well-known, big names). The entertainment presented covers all styles and pleases all ages. It's really wonderful! There's something here for everyone!”
“I love how the whole town comes to life during the festival. The music gets everyone on their feet young and old alike. I wouldn't miss it for the world - Rain or Shine!”
“I love the Festival because of its richness that Burlington brings to this event. With the beauty of being on the waterfront, great food, easy access, great music being performed throughout, and the friendly people in Burlington, with the great stages with wonderful selected music, and the best it is all for free, to enjoy in a beautiful waterfront park, and completely safe and no need to worry just to enjoy it all. Thanks Sound of Music Burlington”
“It was free! And the fact that you were able to secure such fantastic bands, made me drive a very far way to see the NY Dolls!”
Travelling by car:
United States citizens traveling by land (vehicle, rail, boat or foot) to Canada need only proof of citizenship and identification for short-term visits. While a passport is preferred by both US and Canadian border authorities, a number of other documents may also be used to cross the border:
- US Passport Card
- Enhanced Drivers License or Non-Driver Photo ID card
- Enhanced Tribal ID Card
- NEXUS or FAST Trusted Traveler Cards (issued by the US Department of Homeland Security)
Travelling by air:
All persons, including U.S. citizens, travelling by air between the United States and Canada (including in-transit passengers who are transferring planes in the U.S.) are required to present a valid passport or NEXUS card, according to an American law, the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI). Check to make sure you have the correct documentation.
