History / Biographical
The Midsummer Music Festival has been held annually in Smithers by the Bulkley Valley Folk Music Society since 1984. The Festival was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19, but the 'Midsummer Memories' event was held instead, involving pop-up performances along Main Street from late morning until early afternoon on Saturday, July 4th. Social distancing protocols were in effect, preventing large crowds from forming. In addition, a display was set up at the Bulkley Valley Museum with slideshow displays of photos from years past as well as posters, t-shirts, and other Midsummer memorabilia. This poster was displayed on the door of the Central Park Building over the July 4th weekend.

History / Biographical
The Bulkley Valley Museum was founded in large part by Ernest Hann, an early pioneer of the Bulkley Valley. Ernest was one of several local residents who had been slowly amassing a collection of documents, photographs and artifacts representing early settler history in the Valley. These personal collections became the core collection upon which the Museum was founded. A shift towards not only collecting, but also displaying materials came in 1967 when the Museum’s first public displays opened in the newly constructed Smithers Public Library, a centennial project for the Town of Smithers. In 1971 the Museum was officially incorporated under the Society’s Act of British Columbia as the Bulkley Valley Historical & Museum Society. In 1974 as space became limited in the Library, the Museum was moved to the Central Park Building, a heritage building constructed in 1925 as the government building and courthouse. The Museum first shared space in the Central Park Building with the Smithers Art Gallery, later moving to its own space on the first floor. Today the Museum collects, preserves and presents items of historical and cultural significance from Smithers and the Bulkley Valley and is enjoyed by over 5000 people per year.
