The Edmonton Muse July 2017 - Page 28

Wow! What a weekend! What a festival! This was by far one of the most organized and accommodating festivals that I have ever attended. The atmosphere was fun and relaxing and I am sure everyone that attended had a better time than they ever expected.

Lets start with the entertainment. The most impressive thing about this festival was the talent that was collected. Every single performer was professional and the vast majority of them were locals! There were performances dedicated to the children of the crowd as well to make sure that everyone had a good time.

The one thing that I heard from so many of the attending artists is how awesome they were treated at this festival. The green room was beautifully set up by Unfauxgettable Interiors. They provided burgers and hot dogs, muchines, coffee, beer and a comfortable place to relax.

I particularly liked the little market that was organized. Supporting local business and arts, these guys thought of everything! There was a line up of food trucks offering everything from cheeseburgers to Jamaican patties. the businesses that were there included: WOVEN WELLNESS, SOUL ART ORIGINAL, SAGE STONE MALAS, THE LATIN BLOOMSTONES, THE PAINTED DOOR ON MAIN, THE BAG AND BATH LADIES, SIMPLY FROSTED, ARMA FORGE SHOP, YEG WOODWORKS, HERBAL HENNA ARTS, ROCKFACE PENS, and ANNAEL.

There was a wide variety of food vendors/ trucks there as well. This included: COSMIC PIZZA, STREET EATS FOOD TRUCK, HOT MESS FOOD TRUCK, JO’S KETTLE CORN, GOOD COFFEE, PARADISE GRILL FOOD TRUCK, CAFÉ BEL-AIR, BO THAI and FAT FRANKS.

The volunteers did an amazing job. I am incredibly impressed with this entire show and the BBRF crew of volunteers worked tirelessly to make sure it was perfect. If there were any hiccups they went unnoticed. We are very excited to see what comes of next year and you can bet on us being there again. Congratulations on your successes BBRF crew!!AND happy 10th anniversary!
