Thanks for another great festival!

Another successful Coldsnap Festival is in the books, and we want to extend our thanks to the musicians, our sponsors, our volunteers, and, of course YOU, the audience. You can relive  the festival by browsing through our online photo albums– and read the notes below about what a great year it was.

Well, folks, another Coldsnap Festival is in the books and what a great time it was!  From the extraordinary kickoff to sweet harmonies to blazing guitar licks and booty slapping, Coldsnap 2016 was an incredible experience and a fantastic, fantastic time. 

On behalf of the board, we are forever grateful to the funders and sponsors that make it possible and help us contribute to the promotion of the city as a critical live music destination. 

To the audience, thank you, thank you, thank you for supporting live music and confirming why we do what we do.  

To our volunteers: there are not enough adjectives in the dictionary to express my personal gratitude to the incredible team of volunteers that work so hard to pull this off. 

This is a true labour of love for all of us and it is a truly wonderful experience to share this love of live music with so many great people.  

Plans are already in the works for our Tenth Coldsnap Festival in 2017 – it will be a doozy!!

Sue Judge, Artistic Director, Coldsnap Music Festival


This week we completed the series of eleven workshops and free performances that brought  our 2016 Coldsnap artists face to face with over 650 Prince George residents from all segments of the community.

We could not have accomplished this level of success without the involvement and assistance of all of you and your community organizations.  Special recognition of course goes to Integris Credit Union without whose support none of this would be possible.

Thank you all so much,

Dave Read, Workshop Coordinator, Coldsnap Music Festival
