Midsummer LIVE!...in the Fall

The 42nd Midsummer Event is scheduled for Saturday, October 23, 2021. 

The traditional 42nd Annual Midsummer Ball has moved from a weekend of mid-summer serenity to a day of autumnal energy with the same Friday Night LIVE! vibe that guests are accustomed to on the Banff Centre campus on Treaty 7 Territory in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

Whether you connect in person or across digital platforms, the event will focus on our dynamic, resilient artistic communities. Featuring powerful performances and artistic spotlights, Midsummer LIVE! will bring us together in celebration of Banff Centre's legacy in sustaining creativity — today and into the future.

Join us on Saturday, October 23, 2021 for a live broadcast from the newly renovated Jenny Belzberg Theatre and enjoy the spectacular midsummer moments you have come to expect, and the noteworthy auction you cherish.

It is with thanks to the support of the Midsummer committee and of generous sponsors and supporters, like you, that we are delighted to be welcoming you to Midsummer LIVE! this fall. Please email midsummerball@banffcentre.ca to receive additional information.

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

*Banff Centre's top priority remains to ensure the health and safety of our community and we will continue to abide by regional, provincial, and federal government public health orders.
