About - Born & Raised
Born & Raised is a celebration and homecoming for Alexisonfire 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 Alexisonfire, 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. Now back with a vengeance and by immensely popular demand, Alexisonfire, alongside City and Colour, Dine Alone Records, and Live Nation, are once again, bringing the music back to where it all started.

Born & Raised Festival has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 per ticket goes to supporting Indspire and their work investing in the education of First Nations, Inuit and Métis students across Canada.
