2018 Firefly Acoustic Music Festival


The event: Firefly Acoustic Music Festival

We are proud to present you the 5th Annual Firefly Acoustic Music Festival, taking place July 28, 2018 inside the Millet Agriplex Arena, located at 5290 45 Ave Millet, Alberta.
As always, we are happy to announce that Thyroid Cancer Canada is on board and will be on-site collecting donations and providing charity receipts.

Thyroid Cancer Canada

The event is set to run 1 pm - 1 am on the arena floor. Camping is available at the Millet Lions Club campground located behind the venue. Contact the Millet and District Lions Club for details.
The event was started as a memorial to a local Millet man, Mike Gauthier, whose love for music was well-known throughout the community. The interest in the festival grew at a rapid rate and we are anticipating upwards of 2,000 people this year. The purpose of this event is to let young musicians perform in a free, all-day long event that is great for the whole family!
We will bring in a bunch of food for everyone to enjoy this year!
