Our group loved every minute and want to thank you for all you did to make it extra special for us as VIP’s and putting us together with such a fun group at dinner. We all had a lot of fun together and many laughs and stories were shared. And a few tears. Thanks again for putting together such an incredible event and we will be looking forward to next years.

I’ve always loved music, but getting to hear the stories behind some of my favorite songs was a once in a lifetime experience I will remember forever.

Like a Nova Scotian kitchen party, we were intimately engaged by the musicians. They were skilled entertainers who told amazing stories, all while performing chart-topping songs. One of the best musical events I have ever attended. We’ve already got our 2021 festival passes!
