Dedicated to building community through music, dance, art and heritage craft traditions
AlgomaTrad: Algoma Traditional Music and Dance Group is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the celebration, sharing, and learning of traditional music, dance and arts that are part of our Canadian culture and heritage. AlgomaTrad operates an annual traditional music, dance, arts, and heritage craft Family Camp, organizes dances throughout the year, and presents concerts of some of the finest traditional and folk musicians Canada has to offer. The organization has been supported over its 15 year existence with grants from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Ontario Arts Council Northern Arts and Arts Education programs, the FreshStart! program from Heritage Canada, the Artist and Community Collaboration Program of the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Great Lakes Stewardship Program. We are currently developing the AlgomaTrad Centre on St. Joseph Island to offer year round programming.
