Ramble and Ride Call for Musicians

It is that time of year again and the organizers of the Old Town Ramble and Ride are seeking interest from musicians and performers for the annual festival.

The Ramble and Ride is a festival put on by the businesses, artists and musicians of Old Town. Specifically, it is a chance for all Yellowknifers to ramble (walk) and ride (bike) down the hill to take in Old Town’s unique character and culture. The goal is to hold an eco-friendly festival that allows every member of Old Town to promote their business or talent through a variety of events.
