Did you know….
… although the City of Quesnel supports the Festival by providing the park space and other services during the Festival, they do not actually organize or put on the Festival?
… in a typical year, the Society spends over $10,000 on the fireworks display? It will be bigger in 2016 and 2017 as we will apply the 2015 budget to those years since fireworks had to be cancelled due to fire restrictions.
… that some events during the Festival are put on by other organizations? eg. The Rodeo by the Quesnel Rodeo Club, Gold Dust Mall by the Quesnel Downtown Association and the Crash to Pass by the Quesnel Auto Racing Assoc.
… virtually all of the stage entertainment is paid. The Headliners do NOT come and play for free – you just get to watch for free.
… the tents owned by the Society are not only used during the Festival but are rented out to raise funds for the events. The members volunteer to put up, take down and clean the tents throughout the summer to make this fundraiser a success.
