Fun Fact: When was your first Peacefest? My very first Peacefest was the first back in 1997. I was 17 when it happened and it was a blast. I loved everything about Peacefest and how it all started. It really brought our community together.

Fun Fact: When was your first Peacefest? My first Peacefest was in 2014. I then volunteered at the 2017 Peacefest. I worked at the daytime event, which was so much fun and worked the night time event working at the bar and worked security booth. Due to the wind and rain storm on the one night, I collected all the small recycling bins to save as many of them as I could for the group that was volunteering for us.
Fun Fact: When was your first Peacefest? My first Peacefest as on stage with my band No Limits in 2006, thrilled that we were opening for Corb Lund and Johnny Reid. The rest of the weekend I was dancing in the crowd as we literally were raising dust. It’s a memory I’ll always cherish.
