I am super excited for the Invermere Music Fest.
I have shared my love of our visits there before, as a family and on a ladies only get away.
But before we get to that, I just got home from the most amazing musical weekend in Calgary and I want you to get into the live music mood…
First we went to the Calgary Folk Music Festival as guests of Rigstar Communications. We were total virgins to this Folk Fest and we went without kids, so yes, we acted like college kids. Well, until our backs got sore (true story).
Next up? Peter Gabriel and Sting. Together.
Probably the very best musical concert I have ever seen. Rarely did Sting or Peter Gabriel leave the stage. They sang back up for each other, clapped along and even sang each other’s hits. Again, we acted like college kids until our backs were sore and again, we were hosted by Rigstar Communications.
It runs August 19th -21st, 2016 with Friday Night being their first ever Friday Night Kick Off Event. Friday Night is going to be a high energy night with lots of dancing and fun. You know, the kind of night you want to have with your friends and not your kids. Hint, hint.
But, Saturday? That’s the day you can bring the kids. I mean, you can bring the kids on Friday too, but I’m not. On Saturday there is a Kids Corner with lawn games, water balloons, their own live music plus KIDS ARE FREE.
Early bird pricing is on until August 18th, yup the day before the festival, if you wait and buy them at the gate the prices go up. You can buy your tickets here.
It is the location that helps make this music festival amazing. I mean, it is right on the lake, so bring your bathing suit too. Plus, the play park and water park for the kids is super handy. And, it is intimate with two stages, food vendors and beer gardens on site. If you have low lawn chairs and blankets bring those too.
The Sunday part of the festival is chalk filled with amazing musician workshops.
If you need a place to stay or plan on making a full weekend out of it, you can find some good resources on their website.
Now here comes more good news.
I have a pair of tickets to give away!
