Alberta has been in the midst of a recession for a while now. But economic downturn in 2015 didn’t stop us from kicking…errr….shakin’ ass and takin’ names, and 2016 surely won't stop us from another historic festival.
Our mantra? Bigger and Better.
It won’t be an easy year, nor will this be any small feat. But we’re confident enough in our local, national, and international community to come together and show the world that “we ain’t just gun-slingin’, oil-drilling, ranchin’ folk from the Wild West.”
This years’ festival takes place over the weekend of October 14-16, and we’re praying to the glitter gods that it will be just as gorgeously sunny and warm. Updates to the website will take place as details become available, including submission dates, venues, headliners, sponsorship and tickets. And hey, American friends—our dollar is worth two of your quarters right now, so we highly recommend (maybe we’re a little biased…maybe) you to submit or plan a trip just to hang out!
Prepare thy tassel-twirling skills…countdown begins NOW!
