What is Govfest

Govfest is an annual music and cultural festival organized by public servants to celebrate music and arts, while raising funds for charities that support community-based projects around the world.

Govfest brings together hundreds of artists, musicians and volunteers to create and produce the many events that make up our festival. The live music shows feature some of the excellent talent from within the public service staff community and beyond. Musical acts range in styles from funk and reggae to klezmer and classic rock. Some performers are just hitting the stage for the first time while others have recording contract experience. For the wine and art events, the same diversity of styles exists amongst our contributing visual artists, displaying landscapes, portraits, sculptures and more.

Proceeds from Govfest events support two extremely worthy charities: Ryan’s Well Foundation and United Way. Visit our Partners page to learn more about our beneficiaries with these organizations.
