Kingsville Music Society
The Kingsville Music Society (KMS) is an Ontario registered nonprofit organization dedicated to presenting non-alienating world-class celebrations of the musical arts. KMS creates productions that engage audiences with diverse programming, stimulate arts education, foster economic growth, and unite artists and audiences in Kingsville, Ontario Canada. KMS strives to be clean and green at all events.
KMS started as the Sun Parlour Folk Music Society in 2013 with the vision of bringing high-quality artists from around the world to perform in Kingsville and the surrounding area. In 2020 the Society committed to further growth of the organization expanding and developing new multi-genre live music events and in 2021 the Society name changed to the Kingsville Music Society to embrace this growth.
KMS operates year-round to plan and produce an annual multi-day, multi-venue music festival, off-season concerts and Open Streets Kingsville. KMS works in partnership with the Town of Kingsville to provide music experiences throughout the year and outside of regular Society programming.
Kingsville, Ontario, incorporated in 1901, is Canada’s southernmost town situated on the shores of Lake Erie. We acknowledge, recognize and deeply appreciate the traditional territory of the Attawandaron, Anishnaabeg and Haudenosauonee peoples and their historic connection to this place.
KMS is governed by a 7-member board of directors made up of community members with a love of music and desire to inspire youth through the arts.
