Mariposa : celebrating Canadian folk music : Children's Area

Children's Area

Mariposa Festival 1975

From the mid-seventies onward, Mariposa featured children's concerts and children's musical workshops during the festival.  This eventually developed into a year-round operation that became known as the MITS (Mariposa In The Schools) Program, which sent folk musicians into local Ontario schools to teach music and give performances.
