Midsummer Music Festival in Smithers

Do you desire good music? Crave dancing? Love to eat good food, and

be surrounded by awesome people? Come to Smithers annual Midsummer

Music Festival, located at the fairgrounds.


I had the privilege to

attend and perform at this year's festival with the local vocals-

Smithers' community choir. Midsummer is the stomping ground for many

of our local musicians, and coming from such a broad base of talent,

there are alot. This year featured bands such as Mamaguroove (from

Dunster), Tambura Rasa, and the one and only Jim Byrnes.



camped both Friday and Saturday night, providing great opportunity to

stay up late to enjoy music into the wee hours, and get up early (but

not too early) enough to get a steaming hot chai with breakfast.



festival offers an eclectic assortment of shopping, activities for

children, jam zones, and ethnic foods from different vendors. Luckily,

the weather held out for us festival-ers, and a good time was had by

all. There is always something for everyone, whether you enjoy folk,

bluegrass, punk, or rock music, so I highly recommend and invite

everyone to visit the midsummer festival.
