Midsummer LIVE!...in the Fall

The 42nd Midsummer Event is scheduled for Saturday, October 16, 2021. 

With the support of the Midsummer committee and our generous sponsors and supporters, planning is underway for a re-imagined 2021 Midsummer LIVE! event. We will continue to provide updates throughout the months ahead. Please email midsummerball@banffcentre.ca to receive additional information.

We look forward to sharing with you a live broadcast from the Jenny Belzberg Theatre stage and welcoming a limited number of guests to our stunning campus located on Treaty 7 Territory in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and to experience an unforgettable, immersive event of artistic expression, rich storytelling, and unbound creativity as we celebrate the lasting legacy of one of Canada’s most prominent arts and culture events. 

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.
