Festival Info & Prices

Conestoga Wagon built by Gerry Morgan

The Conestoga Trail Bluegrass & Gospel Festival was created by Gerry & Fran Morgan with two primary objectives:

  • Provide high quality bluegrass & gospel music in a clean, safe and strictly family-oriented environment.
  • Generate financial assistance to the Brant Community Healthcare System.

The festival offers excellent US and Canadian Bands, Workshops, Jamming, RV Parking, food and special interest vendors and good, clean fun. In order to maintain the integrity of the festival, strict rules are imposed.

What’s behind the name?

 The festival is held on Gerry & Fran Morgan’s farm, located on highway No.2 just west of the village of Princeton, which was founded in 1792. The original road which is now Hwy 2 was one of the first roads in southwestern Ontario. It was the primary route for settlers moving into the southwestern Ontario area and a great many wagons and carriages used the road. Gerry & Fran have an interest in old wagons and buggies which are on display at the festival and, because of their fondness for the large freight wagons known as Conestoga wagons, they decided on the name Conestoga Trail.
