Midsummer Gratitude | Saturday, July 18, 2020

In place of the 41st Midsummer Ball Weekend, Banff Centre invites guests to join us for a digital Midsummer Gratitude performance offering our deep appreciation to you and a cohort of Banff Centre supporters. Please email midsummerball@banffcentre.ca to receive additional information including the link to register.

Thank you for your ongoing commitment and support of Banff Centre. 

Support Banff Centre 

In this unprecedented time, it is our top priority to ensure the health and safety of our community. We are doing that by strictly abiding by regional, provincial, and federal government public health orders and halting all public activities on campus. These measures have impacted the continued financial stability of Banff Centre, and we need your support more than ever.

Your support now means Banff Centre is able to maintain essential services on campus and plan for an eventual resumption of fulfilling our mission and vision to allow artists and leaders to make their unique contribution to the world. 

We are so grateful to share that the 41st Midsummer Ball Presenting Sponsor, Husky Energy Inc., Showcase Performances Sponsor, RBC Capital Markets, and several other sponsors and supporters have all remained committed to supporting Banff Centre during this challenging time and we hope to have your support as well. 

Please consider contributing the cost of your ticket originally intended for the Midsummer Ball to support critical operations through this time of uncertainty. This support will help to ensure that Banff Centre can come back strong as soon as we are able to welcome guests, artists, leaders and supporters on campus once again.

Looking Ahead

Please save the date for the 42nd Midsummer Ball Weekend taking place July 23 – 25, 2021.
