7pm: Opening Act - featuring West Lincoln’s own Josh Edwards & Stephanie Deshane

8:30pm: Kira Isabella

Canada Day fireworks display to follow!



Kira Isabella began singing and playing the guitar at 7 years of age under the guidance of her father and her singing teacher.  Inspired by fellow Canadian, country superstar Shania Twain, Kira made the jump into the country music industry. 

Competing and winning the Rising Star Award through the Blyth, Ontario Arts Festival, exposed Kira to well-known music producers and thus launched her career as a country singer.  Kira has toured with Carrie Underwood and Terri Clark among others and has performed regularly at the Boots and Hearts Music Festival. 

Kira cites Faith Hill, Sheryl Crow, Shania Twain and Taylor Swift as strong musical influences.

PoultryFest Niagara is proud to welcome Kira Isabella to our 2017 festival and we thank our many sponsors for keeping PoultryFest family friendly with free admission (including the evening concert with Kira Isabella).

So mark your calendars for June 24th, 2017 and join over 25,000 visitors to one of the largest one day festivals in Ontario, PoultryFest Niagara! And don’t forget to check out the rest of our website for a complete list of PoultryFest activities on June 24th.
