DIY Spring promotes community growth through respect, empathy, and social consciousness. We acknowledge this event, and all of our organizing, takes place on unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin territory.

We won't tolerate harmful or disrespectful behaviour, including but not limited to racism, sexism, transphobia or ableism. Any such behaviour can result in being asked to leave the event with no refund, at the discretion of the organizers.

If you have any concerns during the event, please see an event staff or volunteer, or contact Elsa at


A festival created by women and queer people of colour - safer spaces for marginalized peoples is central to DIY Spring Festival's mandate.

Beyond safer spaces, DIY Spring Festival is creating a new normal, by curating a lineup that centers women, queer folks, and people of colour who are at the forefront of their genres.
