An Event Unlike Any Other

Thank you for helping raise over $1 million 

for the Artist's Fund. 

Join us for the 39th Midsummer Ball Weekend, July 20-22, 2018.

Banff Centre’s 38th Midsummer Ball Weekend came to a successful close on Sunday, July 23, raising more than $1 million net in support of Banff Centre’s Artists’ Fund – ensuring excellence in our arts programming and providing robust levels of scholarship resources so that artists can access our programming based solely on their creative ability, rather than their ability to pay. Learn more about Banff Centre’s Artists’ Fund from the video unveiled at the Ball.

Over three days, hundreds of guests were treated to an extraordinary Culinary Festival and Gala Dinner prepared by Banff Centre’s expert culinary arts team, as well as world class performances by emcee Rick Miller, Measha Brueggergosman, Jens Lindemann, and Project Trio, among others.
