We are saddened to report that Leo Letendre passed away last Saturday evening with his family by his side. Leo was a valued member of the KVMFS board of directors. We will miss him, his humour, his insights, and his perspective. The little pink trailer from which he sold ice cream and hot dogs was a fixture at many local events and the community at large. Our community won’t be the same without him.
We need a huge turnout! 🙂
This Sunday, July 19, will be the last work bee and festival meeting before the 21st annual Kispiox Valley Music Festival! Work bee from 11 am to 4 pm, meeting about 2 pm.
On the same day, starting at 9:30 am, there is a festival cooking bee. Lots of chopping, dicing, stirring, tasting.
Lunch is provided.
Hey, check out the new Volunteers page!
This festival cannot function without volunteers and we really need plenty more of you to come forward. 🙂
I have received a list of some of this year’s headliners (there may be more to come). I’ve begun work on creating pages with photos, links, and bios and I hope to be able to publish those by the end of this weekend. In the meantime, here’s a simple list, in alphabetical order:
The Cardboard Crowns
Coco Love Alcorn
Kasandra Flamenco Ensemble
The Plaid Tongued Devils
The Small Glories
Note to regional acts that have applied for this year’s festival: the selection process is still under way.
With only a week to go until festival time, we are very short of volunteers to staff the gate during the festival. We urgently need more people to fill these positions! If you can help, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator through the contact page on the web site or contact Gate Coordinator Brian Pritchard directly.
Every Sunday between now and the festival weekend, we will have a work bee starting at 11 am and a meeting at 1 pm to discuss any issues that members and other interested people may have.
Both the work bee and the meeting will be at the Kispiox Valley Community Grounds where the festival will be held.
Come on out and help make our 20th annual Kispiox Valley Music Festival a great success!
P.S. Bring shovels, rakes, mowers, weed whackers.
Our web site was recently compromised. Phishing pages were inserted and spam emails were sent out directing people to those pages. Those pages have been removed and the site security has been strengthened. We regret any inconvenience or annoyance that this may have caused to anyone.
The file attachment button on the Contact page got deleted during a recent update but has now been restored. So, if you recently tried to use the Contact page to send in an application but were unable to figure out how to do so, you should have no trouble with it now.
This position has been filled. Many thanks to all those who so enthusiastically offered their services.
NEEDED: someone to be the Hall Stage Manager for this year’s festival. The person who was going to do it has had to bow out.
As the title implies, the job is about managing the stage in the hall. Anyone who’s interested in taking on this important and necessary role should contact our lead coordinator, Geoff Watling.
If you don’t have his email address, you can contact him through the contact form on the Contact Page on the KVMF web site. Just select Lead Coordinator as the “department”.
