The Kispiox Valley Music Festival Society is currently signing up new (and renewed) memberships for our 2017 season. The AGM is coming in mid-January and you need to be a member in order to vote. Please support this great event and get involved! Call Mark at 250-842-6442 to sign up!
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.
Many performers were having trouble with our web-based application form. We have replaced it with a fillable PDF form.
You download the form, fill it out, save it, and email it to the Performers Committee. The emailing instructions are in the form.
If you have trouble with this new form, please contact the webmaster directly via the Contact Form on our web site.
Here’s our lovely poster for this year!
KVMF poster 2016 copy
With a heart as big as the Aussie desert and a voice kind enough to soothe the Rockies, Tim Bennett connects with a beautiful show that feed the many senses.
In his fifth lap of the summer festivals, Tim Bennett has forged a 6 lane highway to the hearts and ears of Western Canada, all the way trading smiles with all he encounters
Please note that the mailing address of the KVMFS has changed. Here is the new address:
