Residents are encouraged to get their tickets as soon as possible, as Harbourfest 2018 is expecting a sellout crowd. Today, volunteers will be working to set everything up under the Whitecap Pavilion ahead of the event.
“We are crazy busy. Everybody’s making sure that everything is all done for the weekend,” said Sandra Ivanowich, Chairman of the Harbourfest Board.
The August long weekend will feature two nights of music on Saturday and Sunday under Kenora’s Whitecap Pavilion.
“Ticket sales are going well. We’re expecting a sellout on Sunday night, and we’re hoping for one on Saturday as well!,” added Ivanowich.
Opening the show on Saturday night is Moon vs. Sun – made up of Rain Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk. The husband and wife will will perform songs from Maida’s band Our Lady Peace, Kreviazuk’s solo hits and their songs together as Moon vs. Sun.
Headlining Saturday night is 6-time Juno Award winner Serena Ryder, who will perform more than a dozen hit songs including Weak in the Knees, Stompa, Got Your Number, Electric Love and more.
To kick off Sunday night, there’s a co-headlining double-bill of rock. Buckcherry will be up first, followed by Three Days Grace to close out the weekend’s festivities. Three Days Grace sold out Harbourfest 2014.
“I’ve been talking to all of the bands that are coming this weekend. We are really excited, and they are even more excited to come out and play,” said Ivanowich.
Harbourfest 2018 will only have two nights of entertainment, down from the three nights in previous years. The change was made to bring in bigger names to play throughout the weekend. Ivanowich added that the change has also made it easier for volunteers.
“It’s been easier for our committee and all of our community volunteers this year with the two nights. But, we could always use more volunteers,” Ivanowich added.
Tickets are on sale at Donny B’s in downtown Kenora, or online at Harbourfest.ca.
“Thank you very much for supporting Harbourfest 2018!”
