JOBFEST is coming.

The event is a is a Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation (MJTI) initiative that will encompass a 50 date tour that will happen throughout BC. The main objective is to introduce BC’s youth to career options and help them out in making the right choice for their future while having a good time.

There will be a stage with live music on every stop. Acres of Lions – www.acresoflions.com – will be headlining the event but we have two spots for local artists to open up the night.

All genres can apply but rock is preferred. They would need to play two 15 min. sets, the PA and audio engineer is provided but they would need to bring their own backline (drums,amps,instruments,etc

JOBFEST will be in Fort St James on Sunday, June 24.
