Festival Memories

It's festival season. Do you have happy festival memories? Did your parents? Perhaps it's where they met. Now there's an archives for the Mariposa Folk Festival at York University, and online at http://archives.library.yorku.ca/exhibits/show/mariposa with material from 1961 to 1981.

According to a news article Mariposa goes digital personal records kept by festival founder Ruth Jones McVeigh of Orillia, which were originally donated to Library and Archives Canada in Ottawa are now at York U. Kudos to LAC for allowing this type of material to be repatriated to a local location.
