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.

This poster was displayed on the door of the Central Park Building over the July 4th weekend.
