Midsummer LIVE! Silent Auction

The Midsummer LIVE! event – an important update

Following this month’s Government of Alberta announcement of a State of Public Health Emergency, in consultation with our top sponsors, and, most importantly with the safety of our guests, patrons and artists at the forefront, Banff Centre has made the very difficult decision to not proceed with the in-person or the live broadcast component of Midsummer LIVE! event on Saturday, October 23, 2021. The silent auction launched last week will continue to be available until October 23.

It is with thanks to the support of the Midsummer committee and of generous sponsors and supporters, like you, that Banff Centre can continue to provide artists the freedom to explore, create, collaborate, and inspire. We thank you in advance for continuing to support artists and the Banff Centre.

We look forward to when we can welcome you back to campus, when it is safe to do so again, for the Jenny Belzberg Theatre Grand Opening Weekend, May 7 & 8, 2022 and the July 2022 Midsummer Ball. More information will be shared in the near future.

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