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

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.
