Support the development of innovative artists.
Join us for the 38th Midsummer Ball Weekend, July 21 to 23, 2017
The social calendars of Canada's prominent arts supporters and corporate leaders converge in late July for Banff Centre's Midsummer Ball Weekend. In our breathtaking natural setting, this three-day cultural, social and recreational extravaganza most recently attracted over 310 supporters whose generosity raised over $1.073 million for our Artists' Fund that supports all arts programming including support for talented artists - in the areas of theatre, dance, music, literary arts, visual and digital arts, film and media, and Indigenous arts - to attend our renowned professional development programs. Our 38th Banff Centre Midsummer Ball Weekend happens July 21-23, 2017.
Join J. Vair Anderson Jewellers of Calgary in transforming the lives and careers of Banff Centre artists whose creative work will go on to illuminate our culture and communities.
For each $1,500 donation to the Midsummer Ball Artists' Fund, you will be entered to win one of two Rolex watches to be awarded at the Midsummer Ball Gala. These luxury watches, donated by J. Vair Anderson Jewellers, have a total value of over $30,000.
For each $3,000 donation you can also enter the bonus draw valued at approximately $10,000, also from J. Vair Anderson Jewellers.
