Musical Venues and Events
North Hastings is rich with musical talent. No matter where you go there are fantastic opportunities to listen and join in with local musicians. Similar to what you might expect on the east coast of Canada, kitchens, community halls and local restaurants across North Hastings are places to gather and share the love of music. Pick up a local newspaper to check out the weekly events.
In Bancroft, Friday evening offers local musicians at the South Algonquin Eatery & Pub in the historic Bancroft Hotel.
