The province is spending $20 million to support 328 festivals and events, including three in the Peterborough area.
Officials say the 'Celebrate Ontario' program not only helps provide funding, but will in turn increase tourism, create jobs and expand local economic opportunities.
Peterborough Musicfest will get $76,000, a total General Manager Tracey Randall says will help organizers compete for high profile musical acts.
The other recipients of funding under Celebrate Ontario are the Kawartha Craft Beer Festival and the 2018 season at 4th Line Theatre.
