Join FEO!

FEO is proud to serve its more than 500 active members, that represent over 1,400 festivals and events in Ontario. We’ve grown to become the largest organization in Canada representing the festivals and events industry. With our members’ help, we’ve built a community of knowledgeable, dedicated and passionate festival and event organizers and volunteers. 

It’s within this community that our members create conversations that lead to greater success for their festivals, events and businesses. Through networking, our members learn from each other, creating a stronger industry province-wide. We are putting the large, international festivals alongside the smaller community festivals from all corners of Ontario – each having something unique to offer the other.
