From the fine folks at the Harvest Moon Festival, a reminder that your window for buying early-bird tickets is fast closing. Stay tuned to UMFM for interviews with the organizers and features with the performers!
We are fast approaching Harvest Moon Festival 2014 and early-bird tickets are selling out at record speed! With 2014 being the International Year of the Family Farm, we’ll be celebrating the tradition of family farming in a big way. Surrounded by the beauty of the Pembina Valley, this unique three-day festival is a celebration of the harvest season, local food production, the area’s rich cultural heritage, and the bond between rural and urban folks. The town of Clearwater will once again host the 13th perennial festival September 12-14, 2014.
This year’s unforgettable line-up is set to include the homegrown talents of: Royal Canoe , DJ Co-op & DJ Hunnicutt, Ridley Bent, Pegggers Banquet, Del Barber, Heartbeat City, Les Jupes, Shotgun Jimmie, JD & the Sunshine Band, Yes We Mystic, French Press, Human Music, SC Mira, Naysa, SMRT, Kipp Kocay and his Band, Slow Spirit, the Reverend Rambler, Well Sister, Jess Reimer, and more.
For the past 13 years, the Harvest Moon Festival has helped support economic development and family farming in Southwestern Manitoba. As well as economic development and great music, education and information has always played a significant role in the event. Festival goers can attend informative and hands-on workshops, which are free with admission. In addition to music and workshops, there will be a children’s area, a fair-trade fair, a farmer’s market, and tasty locally produced food from a variety of exciting food vendors.
Last year’s festival was our first sell out, and tickets are selling even faster this year. We anticipate the festival will sell out even earlier this year. Early bird tickets are available until September 1 in Winnipeg (Organic Planet), in Clearwater (Clearwater Country Market), and Brandon (Two Farm Kids). Weekend Passes ($55 adult/$30 youth ages 12-17). Camping ($10 adult/$5 youth). Friday only ($25 adult/$15 youth). Saturday only ($35 adult/$20 youth). Mooner Pass (1-5 people, max 2 adults): $150 (does not include camping). After September 1, prices of all passes will increase. Camping for adults is $15/person, and $5/person for youth. Kids under 12 get in free!
