There are banners and signs to put up, shuttles to organize with the taxi, T-shirts to sell and the last push for volunteers and selling weekend and day passes.

“The sponsors have been awesome, things are looking good,” said Lionel Conant, president of the MoM non-profit society.

Anyone interested in volunteering with the music festival can get in for the weekend for free if you dedicate 12 hours to helping out, before or during the event.

Volunteers are needed still for a range of positions, including security, clean up, parking attendants, kitchen help and the merchandise booth.

To volunteer, call Ginny at 250-996-2276 or email her at
