Hey there, time traveller!

The 32nd annual Brandon Folk, Music and Art Festival was another smashing success, boasting acts such as Ron Sexsmith, John K. Samson and The Winter Wheat, Logan Jax and The Young Pixels.

Not only did folks enjoy music from more than 24 delightful musical acts, they could also enjoy tasty choices to cure their hunger and thirst from the multiple food vendors.

There was a little something for everyone during the weekend from July 22-24 on the Keystone Centre grounds. In addition to the musical wonderland, there was also a community marketplace where artists, craft-makers and not-for-profit organizations could sell their wares and demonstrate their work for the audience and other artists.

A big shout-out to all the hard-working volunteers who are truly the heartbeat of every folk fest!
