Rock The Hills Music Festival was established in late 2013 by several local youth, shortly thereafter they partnered with the Halton Hills Cultural Roundtable and the Optimist Club of Halton Hills. We are an outlet for the creative skills and energies of our communities. We are a place where anyone can hear the music that contributes to the makeup of Halton Hills. The festival is designed to celebrate local youth and their love for music, art & expression.
