Marval Festival
Exploration of Arts, Music and Heritage

Marval Festival is a festival celebrating music, art, heritage, culture and the love of the outdoors.

Held on the founder's family farm, we are working hand in hand with the surrounding community of Prince Edward County building our vision of a world-class, multi-day gathering place that will assist in the development of a vibrant cultural community. To achieve this, Marval Festival participants will create a temporary village presenting a wide range of music, art, food and culture, leveraging the numerous and varied local producers.

About TED
TED is an annual event where some of the world's leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are most passionate about. "TED" stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design - three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping our future. And in fact, the event is broader still, showcasing ideas that matter in any discipline. Attendees have called it "the ultimate brain spa" and "a four-day journey into the future." The diverse audience - CEOs, scientists, creatives, philanthropists - is almost as extraordinary as the speakers, who have included Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, Paul Simon, Sir Richard Branson, Philippe Starck and Bono.
