Summer is packed with festivals celebrating live music outdoors across the province, but the festivities don't stop when the weather turns slightly chilly. The Harvest Moon Festival takes over Clearwater September 18-20 for three days of workshops on sustainable living, farmer's market, kid's fun, fair trade fair, food vendors, and a big helping of local music surrounded by the beauty of the Pembina Valley.
This year’s fest boasts a diverse lineup including The Bros. Landreth, Attica Riots, Dirty Catfish Brass Band, Greg MacPherson, The Reverend Rambler, Barta, Mise en Scene, Kevin Roy, Mika-Dawn, The Catamounts, Until Red, Micah Visser, Lakes and Pines, Bowen, Warren Friesen, and plenty more.
Now in its 14th year, the festival has helped support economic development and family farming in southwestern Manitoba. As well as economic development and great music, education and information has always played a significant role in the event. Festival goers can attend informative and hands-on workshops, which are free with admission. In addition to music and workshops, there will be a children’s area, an open mic stage, a fair-trade fair and farmer’s market, and locally-produced food from a variety of food vendors.
The festival tends to sell out, so if you're planning your fall, don't miss out. Get all the ticket details at harvestmoonfestival.ca
