The Harvest Sun Music & Art Society
We envision the renewal and transformation of a small prairie community, not only in population, but also in spirit, not necessarily into what it once was, but into something revitalized and unique with a current, fresh vision. Not to the exclusion of the pioneers that inaugurated this community, but rather in their honor, and not to the exclusion of the families presently involved in agriculture, but rather for their support and enhancement. It is our desire to provide arts education, entertainment and a celebration of culture to the community at large.
The Harvest Sun Music Fest, is a full fledged, 3 day music fest with over 20 acts (all Canadian). We currently serve the village of Kelwood as well as the surrounding communities within the Rural Municipality of Rosedale. We strive to bring cultural artistic experiences, while supporting agriculture in our area by providing a forum and a voice for prominent agri-support foundations, such as the Farm & Rural Support Services who we currently partner with and who play a role in the Harvest Sun as a festival.
We work hard to provide many opportunities for community involvement such as free access for local producers to advertise and sell within our onsite farmers market, performing for local musicians, and also the opportunity to join our growing volunteer base which we feel knits our community together in a unique way.
We currently have over 100 dedicated volunteers, with more showing interest and we celebrated agriculture through the arts last year with a record audience which we hope to continue building in the years to come.
