Fish Griwkowsky recounts North Country Fair’s of the past


North Country Fair has been celebrating summer solstice in northern Alberta since 1979 and, this year, the festival continues in new, innovative ways. In partnership with the North Country Fair, CKUA shines a spotlight on one of Alberta’s most unique festival experience.

I’ve said it before; I’ll say it again – North Country Fair is the best music festival, period.
– Fish Griwkowsky, Edmonton Sun
