April 29th, 2013
For Immediate Release


Northern Lights Festival Boréal (NLFB) is currently accepting vendor/crafter/artisan applications for the 2013 festival. The festival will take place July 5th, 6th and 7th at Bell Park, Sudbury. The festival traditionally hosts numerous food vendors, artisans, crafters, retailers, as well as non-profit and environmental exhibitors. The festival usually attracts anywhere between 10,000 and 15,000 patrons from Northern Ontario and beyond, and is host to 40+ musical acts. Vendor application forms and information regarding fees, logistics and more can be found online at:

Vendors will be selected through a formal application process and can expect to hear back by May 31, 2013 at the absolute latest. Originality is certainly an asset, as NLFB organizers seek to preserve the eclectic and diverse atmosphere the festival has become known for.

“We had a great diversity of vendors and non-profit displays last year, and we seek only to expand on this for 2013,” says Max Merrifield, Executive Director of the festival.

NLFB is Canada’s longest continuous running music festival and celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2011. Over the years NLFB has grown from a one day event called the ‘Northern Lights Folk Festival’ into a seasoned presenter of Canadian roots and modern music. The modern NLFB experience can be described as, ‘a roots music festival that loves modern music,’ or ‘a modern music festival that’s in love with its roots.’ For more information, please contact the Northern Lights Festival Boréal office at / 705-674-5512

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op was formed to create independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media.
