I am a self taught Indigenous designer born and raised in the Edmonton (Treaty 6) area. I was adopted at a young age from the foster care system and had the privilege to learn and connect through Powwow dancing and cultural activities. Throughout my life I have fallen in and out of cultural connection straddling two worlds and navigating life in a way that made me feel isolated. With the birth of my son I have found my love and connection through creating beadwork, ribbon work and upcycled design. My art has helped me learn, grow and reconnect with my roots. Feathered Away is my heart and soul and has allowed me to share my creativity with the rest of the world.

Service Animals Only
Our Festival grounds are a “no animal” zone for everyone’s safety, plus take into serious consideration if a music festival really is the best place for your animal to be at. There are many children running around, the grounds are crowded and the music is loud! Leave your pets at home.
Fully trained service animals that are in service for physical elements only – such as seeing eye dogs – will be considered for entry, and their Gov’t of AB ID certificate, plus official vest plus lead, must be provided.
Emotional support animals do not come under this classification of physical service to their humans and will not be allowed entry.
Check with us in advance via direct message on our socials or via our email (top right corner here on the website) to confirm if your service animal qualifies.
Do expect bags and small coolers to be searched, and potentially receive a pat down at the Front Gate from professional security, so if you are looking to bring in anything that could be an issue, please take it back to your car before entering the grounds.
No glass containers except for baby food.
No Pets or Animals
We are a family friendly Festival and there are lots of kids running around and our Festival grounds are crowded, so for everyone’s comfort and safety – including our animals – please leave your pets at home.
Please see our “What Can I Bring” section regarding Service Animals.
No alcohol or smokable/edible cannabis products; no non-prescription recreational/illegal drugs.
• No outside alcohol is allowed to be brought into the Festival grounds. If any is found in your bags or on your person as you enter the gates, it will be emptied/confiscated at the gate.
• No cannabis products, prescription and non-prescription alike (as pursuant City of Beaumont bylaws)
• No non-prescription recreational/illegal drugs.
No Open and Unsealed Beverage Containers
Any open and unsealed bottle or other beverage containers of any kind will be emptied out at the gate.
NO PROFESSIONAL CAMERAS OR AUDIO/VIDEO RECORDING EQUIPMENT
Any professional AV equipment seen being used in the audience will be confiscated.
No drones, laser pointers, fireworks or weapons
Drones fall under the same category as professional AV equipment, and the park is a no-fly zone. Even if you are Gandalf, you must leave your wizard staff at home!
No golf or beach umbrellas
If you can fit three to four people under it, it’s too big. Leave the golf and beach umbrellas at home please.

“I LOVE BBRF!!!!!
I have been attending BBRF for several years now. It is my favorite thing to do in Beaumont. It is a relaxed, safe and fun atmosphere for families, while still being a great place to hang with friends and listen to some great music.
The music is always good and flows all day. They have several great food trucks and merchants to check out while enjoying the tunes. They have brought some big names to our little town and there is something really special about listening to Serena Rider, Chantal Kreviazuk, The Sheepdogs and so many more in the shadow of our beautiful church. Proud to be from Beaumont.
If you have never attended this festival you are missing out! Don't be on the outside of the fence again, make sure you get tickets every year and don't miss this amazing event, right here in Beaumont!”
JenniferBADAS BBRF 2020
“Amazing event! Organizers and volunteers rose to occasion and out did themselves, providing a fun and covid conscious festival.
Performers were outstanding. We are so thankful for the thought and effort put towards the event as it allowed for some normalcy this summer. Thank you💗”
“I love this festival! It keeps going from strength to strength! The atmosphere is so welcoming and relaxed, a great festival for the whole family. I also love the variety of food trucks, vendors and having the two stages keeps the music playing all day! So lucky to have this festival so close to home in Beaumont. Can't wait for next year!”
BillBADAS BBRF 2020
“Such a well run, organized event!”
“Amazing music and fun for the whole family. We've gone every year since they moved to Four Seasons. We buy the early early bird tickets in December before they even know the lineup, that's how much we love this festival. We're going no matter who is performing.”
“First year going, and it was FANTASTIC!
Great atmosphere, friendly people and the music was top notch!
Definitely returning in 2020 🤗”
“Great music in a kid friendly environment!”
“Super community spirit, great music. Fun to be there!”
“Awesome line up , great food and drink ... didn’t spend a lot of time waiting in lines. Free shuttle to and from the campground was awesome !”
“Awesome 😄👍🏻amazing bands, had a fantastic time👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻”
“I loved my experience at the Beaumont Blues and Roots festival. This was my first year at the festival, and it was a great experience. The choice of artists was top notch and the attention to choosing a variety of artists was fantastic. I enjoyed that so many of the bands and musicians were from the Edmonton/Beaumont area as there are so many people making great music in this area. And Friday night's lineup of all female artists was big. That night featured so many powerful Canadian female's on stage sharing their talent I almost couldn't believe I was there in person.”
“We have been attending the Beaumont Blues & Roots Festival for many years and it just keeps getting better each year! It is so impressive that this high level, well organized festival is completely ran by volunteers. We are so proud that this event is in our amazing community of Beaumont, what a fantastic asset to the town 🙂”
“This is one of my favourite weekends every year! Great music, great food and even better company!”
“My first time attending Beaumont Blues & Roots Festival. What a great little festival! Awesome artists, loved the size. Easy to get to, great view from anywhere you sat. I will definitely go back!”
“I have performed at and attended an awful lot of music festivals over the years.
BBRF has a charm and spirit like no other. I plan on being there every year.”
“We attended our first Blues and Roots festival this year and I am so happy we did. What an amazing event to have in our own little town. The atmosphere was fantastic and you couldn’t beat the fact that you could see the show from anywhere you sat or stood. Our kids had a blast. You could take the whole family or just go as couple or with a group of friends. You’re sure to run into someone you know. How fortunate we are to have such an event each year. My only disappointment was that we never took the time to attend this brilliant event from the get to go. We will be adding to this to our yearly calendar as a must attend. Great value, great music and extremely well organized. Kudos to the organizers and volunteers that make this event happen! Thank-you BBRF!”
“This was the first time I have been to the Bluesfest. It was amazing! Fantastic music all around, an intimate set up that was both comfortable for families and individuals, great amenities, and well organized! Thank you to all of the volunteers who put their time into this event. I will be a big supporter in years to come! Loved the headliners this year and look forward to another great time next year!”
“LOVED this festival! It was my first time attending and I was very, very impressed 🙂 Will definitely be going again next year. Kudos to everyone involved in the planning and organizing. See you next year!”
“This is my second year going to BBRF. I love the family friendly atmosphere, the music is great, I like that it’s all Canadian talent! The festival is so well organized, you get inside the grounds, set up your spot and really enjoy relaxing with family and friends. Serena Ryder was amazing! I loved “Nice Horse” as well. Invite them back!! Thanks for the hard work all the volunteers put in too!”
“This was the first year that we went and can not figure out why we haven't previously attended. The musicians were fantastic, the atmosphere was great and the hospitality is second to none. It is a gem of a festival and highly recommended.”
“An absolutey wonderful festival. You can feel the heart and soul that goes into it!
All Canadian and all heart!”
“A great festival featuring all-Canadian acts performing a range of blues and roots music. Lovely location in charming Beaumont, AB.
Well run & organized with a good family atmosphere.”
