Alexisonfire and City and Colour’s Born & Raised festival returns to Montebello Park in St. Catharines, Ontario

Alexisonfire, City and Colour, Dine Alone Records, and Live Nation Canada have announced the return of the beloved Born & Raised Festival. Back for its second year, the two-day event will once again take over Montebello Park in the artists’ cherished hometown of St. Catharines, Ontario on Friday, July 5, and Saturday, July 6, 2024. Alexisonfire and City and Colour have put together a stacked lineup of friends. Joining them are: Metric, The Used, Sloan, Counterparts, Dooms Children, and Ekkstacy.

Born & Raised is back!” says Alexisonfire’s George Pettit. “After an overwhelmingly successful first attempt, the gang in AOF and City and Colour are returning to Montebello Park in peak physical form. Bring your friends, bring your sunscreen, strap in for the concert of the summer. Don’t sleep on it!”

Born & Raised is a celebration and homecoming for bandmates Dallas Green, George Pettit, Wade MacNeil, Chris Steele, and Jordan Hastings. The festival pays homage to the Alexisonfire track bearing its name, serving as a tribute to the hometown that witnessed the humble origins of the band as well as City and Colour, Dine Alone Records, and Bedlam Management. Alexisonfire rose up out of the St. Catharines, Ontario underground in late 2001. Green’s City and Colour’s Platinum-certified solo album ‘Sometimes’ debuted a few short years later in 2005.

2022’s inaugural Born & Raised featured four electric nights of music, food, and drink, attracting tens of thousands of fervent fans to St. Catharines’ Montebello Park. The festival included memorable performances from Sam Roberts Band, Broken Social Scene, Billy Talent, NOBRO, Moneen, PUP, and more.
