Join our Flotilla

AHOY, Musicians, Pontoon Boat Owners & Drivers!

We would love for you to join us for our Musical Flotilla on the Rideau River!
Sunday June 23rd, 2024, 10am-Noon
Mahogany Harbour, Watson’s Mill, and Mahogany Harbour Channel (in that order )

For those who are not participating in the flotilla, we encourage and welcome you all to a jam session at Manotick United Church from 1-4pm.
In the case of inclement weather, we will forgo the flotilla and meet for the jam session at 1pm.

Calling all pontoon boat owners & drivers! Without your help and generosity, we simply could not have our flotilla. If you or someone you know might be able to supply a boat & driver for our event, we’d love to hear from you!

Please fill out the form below.

First, a few notes for musicians:
Priority will be given to those musicians who are Festival Pass holders – except for musicians who provide their own boat.
This year we are looking for musicians who play fiddle/guitar/keyboard/mandolin
You can register as an individual or as a group.
You may have 3 fiddlers and one accompaniment instrument (piano/guitar/mandolin) or
2 fiddlers and 2 accompaniment instruments (piano/guitar or mandolin).
Unlike past years, all of our music will occur on the water,
so “onshore” players will not be required.
Space is limited, so let us know right away if you would like to get On Board!
(FOTR will provide spots for musicians based on availability of boats.)
.There is not enough room for music stands on the boats, so we suggest musicians know their tunes, and be able to play them at performance tempo.
Check out our Festival Tune List.


    The following questions are for musicians...







    Participants will also be required to sign a waiver form and return to us at least 1 week before the event.
