The harvest came and went in 2020, but there was no Harvest Moon festival in the little Clearwater, pop. 70, give or take some.
It was the first time since the agricultural and mainstream cultural gathering began in 2002 that there was no music, no workshops, no influx of hundreds of guests into the southern community, at 100 kilometers southwest of Winnipeg and not far from US-Canada. frontier. A successful one-day event took place in Winnipeg, but the Clearwater grounds remained quiet as the pandemic grew noisy.
Now, after a year-long hiatus, a rejuvenated Harvest Moon is looming on the horizon, which runs September 17-19. A series of 500 tickets will go on sale Wednesday morning at 11 a.m., reserved for customers fully vaccinated at least 14 days before the start of the festival.
And those lucky ticket holders will be treated to an eclectic and stacked lineup, with 18 artists scheduled to take the stage.
There is a bit of everything, says producer Stu Anderson, representing a diverse range of sounds and backgrounds that should help make the 20th edition of the festival one to remember.
For starters, only 500 tickets are made available for the 2021 edition, with a limit of six tickets available per order. Weekend passes are sold for $ 100, or $ 115 with camping.
