Fourth PEAK Music Festival Sept. 10 and 11
The Fisher Peak Performing Artists Society (FPPAS), in collaboration with Key City Theatre, will present the fourth annual PEAK Music Festival at Rotary Park in Cranbrook on Friday, September 10 ( 6 to 11 p.m.) and Saturday, September 11 (12 to 11 p.m.).
This free community music event will celebrate a wealth of local and regional talent and infuse two vibrant, rising Canadian headliners into 16 hours of the two-day live outdoor show.
Attendees should expect a casual atmosphere for the whole family, while maintaining the community care plan to prevent the spread of communicable disease.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has been a huge reminder on how to practice good hygiene and allow a respectful space when gathering in a public place. As we head towards cooler weather when events move indoors, we encourage everyone to get their vaccinations up to date,” stated Maureen Frank, FPPAS Marketing Director.
“Take a shot for live music” is the message.
PEAK Music Festival began in 2018 with a grant from the Department of Canadian Heritage, Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage Program.
This federal program has consistently funded the annual event, even in 2020 when an adapted version following COVID-19 protocols was held over four consecutive Saturdays in September humorously dubbed ‘MASKerade at Moir.”
Although most of the performers are familiar favourites, a festival event is a great platform to introduce the energy and experience of a non-local touring band as part of the networking strategy key to the development of artistic careers.
The Fisher Peak Brewing Company will provide a licensed beer garden to serve their craft beer products, food will be offered by local vendors, plus other unique booths. Kootenay community pride and reconnection is featured and celebrated while we carefully navigate through pandemic times.
Many hands make for a lighter load. Volunteers are a crucial component of any community event, and they are very much needed for short shifts between two and four hours.
FPPAS is seeking about 20 reliable people who are willing to do some of the minor tasks over the course of the event. Sign up on their website. Perks include clothing, food, and a festive atmosphere.
