Connie Williamson, Events Manager for Tourism Sun Peaks, expressed her excitement for the annual concert weekend, "This event has become a fan-favourite of residents and guests alike. As one of our premier, free concert weekends, it has steadily been growing in popularity over the past 6 years, and is showing no signs of slowing down."
