Devil's Advocate? Ancaster Fairgrounds is viable as a festival site because of the mobile nature of festival audiences. It positions FoF as a regional draw, and I imagine that might make it easier to obtain provincial funding... within 20 min radius of the site you've got Brantford and downtown Hamilton, within 30 min Burlington, within 45 min radius of the site you've got Cambridge and Oakville. It works for them, and it clears the ground for creative growth in the old city's open-air festival circuit (which would include May's Spring Music Festival, June's Wingfest, July's It's Your Festival, and August's Mardigras Carnival -- the most obvious benefactor of FoF's move to the city margins). Win-win, I'd say.
