Burl’s Creek Event Grounds is pleased to announce it received a ruling from the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) to amend permanent zoning on certain parts of its land to permit camping, parking, concessions and ancillary uses in conjunction with special events at Burl’s Creek.
“These lands have been used for over 30 years to host world-class events, and today’s news supports our ability to continue indefinitely,” said Todd Jenereaux, Executive Vice President of Burl’s Creek. “We have worked closely with the township, county and local agencies to get to this point, and thank all parties for their support and contributions. Today we can proudly confirm our commitment to host events that provide positive economic impact, tourism and similar local benefits.”
Purchased by the current owner in 2014, the meticulously-designed 600 acre Burl’s Creek property has become a premier music and event destination in Ontario. Past events include three editions of WayHome Music and Arts Festival and the only Canadian tour stop for The Rolling Stones 2019 No Filter tour. Summer 2020 will feature Boots and Hearts Music Festival, for its ninth year and the second edition of Big Sky Music Festival.
“Burl’s Creek is more than just a place for concerts,” continued Jenereaux. “It is a destination for friendship, community, family and fun. Our events create lasting memories and offer our patrons time-of-your-life experiences that cannot be executed this well anywhere else in Canada. Thanks to today’s positive decision from the LPAT we will continue to build world-class events for the community to attend.”
