Rogue Fest is a three-day outdoor festival where you can immerse yourself in non-stop, genre-crossing music, art, and more.
Discover your new favourite band, find inspiration in the Rogue Art Gallery, learn cool new things at rural-living focused workshops, all while checking out funky vendors, interactive installations, our super one-of-a-kind Human Foosball, creative demonstrations, and delicious food and libations on the idyllic, family-run Clarke Farm in Wilson Creek.
