Looking for some music and art under a summer sky? Lac du Bonnet’s Fire and Water Music festival offers all this and much more. The festival runs from July 31 to August 2, providing its festive activities for all of August long weekend.

Fire and Water is a one stop shop; they cover an impressive amount of artistic mediums and musical genres. Expect to see visual artists, sideshow performers and dancers. They will also have three stages featuring everything from artist workshops, art shows, a film festival, children’s programming and of course music.

This year Fire and Water will have country folk group The Madtrappers and free jazz jammers The Psychics among other musical groups and attractions. “I’m looking forward to the Sol Barrage Light Show, which really puts the fire into the Fire and Water festival,” Cyndie Mitchell, festival spokesperson, says.

Fire and Water is a family friendly festival as attendees under 12 get in for free and there is a wide array of kid’s activities to explore. To fully experience the Fire and Water Festival, there is camping near the festival grounds, allowing your summer outdoor enjoyment to begin in full bloom.
