Fairmont Hot Spring Resort (FHSR) has had its first event of the summer, with organizers excerising their creativity to come up with different forms of entertainment in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

FHSR held a mini-concert series from September 12th to 14th, with Felicia McMinn, from Port Dover, Ontario, as the musical artist in residence for the event.

Taking advantage of the resort’s wide-open spaces, organizer opted for take-out Southern-style barbecue in addition to the concert. The RV guests enjoyed the first live performance from their sites. Picnic tables were spaced on several vacant RV sites to allow physical distancing. On Saturday night, Felica performed a second time for guests and locals. Guests at the resort’s main lodge were invited to sit on their balconies to listen to the musicians from there. They received their take-out barbecue through a pulley system that was PYO (pull-up your own). Locals golf enthusiasts also enjoyed the concert while sitting in their golf carts, physically distanced on the green area.

“It was really important to us that these events were created to offer lightness and an escape for a few hours, considering how different and challenging the last five months have been for everyone regarding COVID-19. We also wanted to thank our guests and our local community for their continuous support and understanding during these different times where we are all in. The mini-concert idea was to join together and make some fantastic memories.” said Jennifer Gare, FHSR Marketing Consultant.
