In just its fourth year since inception, the Invermere MusicFest is once again working at firing up the vendor options to give everyone a palatable option that meets their tastes at Kinsmen Beach Greenspace from August 19th to 21st.

After a successful 2015 MusicFest, organizers decided that if it isnt broke, dont fix it, electing to bring back the same three food vendors for this year as last summer.

Street Dogs, owned by Barry and Carol Lance, will be serving gourmet-style hot dogs that will no doubt pair well with the warm weather typically accompanying a weekend in the middle of August. Gio Pomodoro out of Canmore, Alberta will be joining them, serving up several delectable Italian street dishes that were widely popular last time around, said Invermere MusicFest executive director Jami Scheffer.

Lastly is GreenHut Whole Foods Eatery, which specializes in organic cold-pressed juices, smoothies, rice bowls, curries and salads. This option will cater to those looking for fresh, organic and local dishes that are a healthier option than many other alternatives. Ms. Scheffer said that with the Invermere MusicFest being a small music festival, it is extremely important to support local food vendors such as these three who are all from the local surrounding areas.

In terms of alcoholic beverages, there will be a fully fenced off beer garden on the concert grounds for the weekend. For beer, local brewery Arrowhead Brewing Company will be serving their tasty brews while Tinhorn Creek Vineyards will sponsor the wine selection.

While a music festival at heart, the event will also offer activities for children to participate in with the Westside Legacy Trail hosting the Kids Korner and the Summit Youth Centre operating the merchandise tent. Those looking to earn a free ticket into the festivities are invited to sign up as a volunteer online for one eight-hour shift. The volunteer positions are split up by jobs that include pre-festival crew, front gate, beer garden sales, Sunday workshop crew, photography, hospitality and the merchandise crew.

For those looking to save their money for the numerous tasty food options and merchandise available at the event while enjoying the diverse array of music, a volunteer position might be right up your alley.
