It has become one of the most popular days of music in the Kootenays in the past few years.

Billed as the largest lawn setting in the Kootenays, Coy’s offers plenty of space and some of the finest big views in the region.

On the bill are: John McCuaig Band, Stand Back And Let the Dog See the Rabbit(BC/DC members), Matt Blais Band, Thinking Man, Whiskey Chief, Oak Republic, Valley Forged, and Emily Malloy.

Helping make the day a great family event are Gigantic Kis/Fun Zone with Laser Tag Maze, Bouncy Castles, Inflatable Obstacle Course, a magician, craft tent and petting zoo, notes concert organizer Rory Sinclair.

The gate opens at noon and music starts at 2 p.m.

Tickets Available- online and In Fairmont at Coy’s Par 3 Golf, Hoodoo Grill, Hoodoo Centex Gas Station, Smoking Waters Coffee Co. and in Invermere at  Copper City Liquor Store.
