June 21 | National Indigenous Peoples Day Celebration


We are thrilled to be feature the below musicians, entertainments and a kid zone. 


A Juno award winning artist from the Sta’atl’imx Nation, George Leach brings intense passion and dedication to every performance. His music spans several genres stemming from rock and soulful blues roots with slide guitar riffs blending a range of rhythms with his powerful voice. His self-produced debut album, “Just Where I’m At”, released in 2000, garnered international recognition, won numerous awards and established George as a respected singer, songwriter, guitarist and performer. His second album “Surrender”, released in 2013, displayed his raw vulnerability along with his incredible vocal range, and went on to become a multiple award winning achievement. He continues to create, explore new sounds, and captivate audiences with his energy and spirit. A live performance by George Leach is an experience you won’t forget.


The Margit Sky Project is an incredibly diverse group of musicians that play as a duo or up to a six-piece band. The core duo, comprised of Margit Gossage and Rod (Little Sky) Bandura, are partners on stage and in life. When you hear them play, the close connection between the two will leave you wanting to hear more. They deliver songs with a strong power of emotion whether the songs are the band’s original or cover tunes. When you add a few more band mates to the duo you get the full Margit Sky Project!
