The WTF Festival is a multi-day festival featuring some of the biggest names in Canadian entertainment performing in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario over the weekend of June 6-8th, 2019.
The WTF Festival has been developed by Tourism Sault Ste. Marie to create an annual event to attract tourists to our community while giving us “Saultites” a chance to enjoy some of the great attractions in our own back yard.
Meet the folks behind the curtains who are working hard to make this event a success.
