About the Sasquatch Music Festivalo

Since the Summer of 1996, Brass Monkey Productions has organized an intimate concert / camping weekend in the great outdoors of Alberta.  Much like its namesake, the festival moved throughout the western Canadian wilderness with events held near Nordegg, Hinton, Brazeau Reservoir, Smoky Lake, Drayton Valley and Driftpile, AB.  In 2006, the Sasquatch Community Arts Society was established to carry on the festival's activities.  Production, management and booking services continue to be handled by John Armstrong of Brass Monkey Productions.
