This is a really special little festival in Southwest Manitoba.
Every year a couple of thousand music fans descend on the tiny and welcoming town of Clearwater to enjoy an eclectic mix of roots / folk / country music, workshops about sustainability and permaculture, a farmer's market, and a great sense of community and fun.
I find it a quintessentially Manitoba experience, bringing together music, agriculture, and a decidedly informal, DIY, community based ethic and vibe. It also takes place late enough in the fall (mid September) that the Manitoba winter is clearly on its way: nights can be cold, and the night-time audience is typically a sea of toques.
Harvest Moon is a weekend I look forward to again as soon as it's over.
