The 2015 Greenbelt Harvest Picnic
August 21, 2015
The 5th annual Greenbelt Harvest Picnic takes place on Saturday, August 29. This all-day concert is located in beautiful Christie Lake Conservation Area in Dundas, Ontario. Balzac’s is proud to be a supporter and sponsor of the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic. Not only will we be there taking in the festivities, but we will also be offering our Nitro Cold Brew and gelato from our friends at Be Good Gelato. There’s nothing better than watching live music and enjoying a Nitro Cold Brew float!

A legendary line-up at the 2015 Greenbelt Harvest Picnic
This year’s artist line-up consists of an incredible combination of inspiring musicians at different points in their career. For starters, Gordon Lightfoot is playing! Yes! That Gordon Lightfoot, arguably Canada’s greatest and best-known singer-songwriter. With 20 albums under his belt, there’s no doubt he’ll be playing a wide array of hits and (depending on your memory) forgotten classics.
Hamilton rock and rollers Arkells are playing the headlining slot at 9:45pm. They’re currently getting tons of airplay on FM rock radio thanks to the fantastic singles on their latest album High Noon. Other artists that we’re really excited to see are folk-rock singer-songwriter Afie Jurvanen, better known as Bahamas. Hamilton’s singer-songwriter, Terra Lightfoot (no relation) and the acoustic-rock trio, The Rural Alberta Advantage.
Also, the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic will be a reunion of sorts. While we can’t emulate the setting of our cafes in an outdoor setting, we can re-connect with Sam Beam, better known as Iron & Wine. Back in 2013, he performed a touching rendition of The Postal Service song “Such Great Heights” at our Liberty Village location for Indie88. Relive all the folky goodness here:
