Come By The Hills 2015 is over; the tents are put away, the bills are paid, the memories are stored and we are in the process of planning for Festival 2016!
On behalf of the organizing committee of the Come By the Hills Festival (officially the Battle River Music Society), I would like to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who helped put that great weekend together. The hosts, Cliff and Kate Brown, all the sponsors who made sure we could pay those bills, the tremendous talent we saw on stage, the sound crew who worked through a very wet Saturday, and most of all the tireless volunteers.
We are blessed with a crew of folks who give up work time and family time and play time to come out to the site at Mistahiya to clear brush, mow grass, set up tents, tables and chairs, and the thousands of tasks necessary to put on such an event. It has been said before and it bears repeating: No event such as the Come By The Hills Festival is even possible without that dedicated band of able and willing workers.
Our thanks to all of you who attended the weekend as performers, workers or audience. We were baptized with rain so, fingers crossed, next year it will be all sunshine all weekend!
Come By The Hills 2016 will be held on August 12 & 13, 2016 — we hope you will SAVE THE DATE and join us for a fabulous weekend of music and fellowship at Mistahiya. Stay tuned to this site and Facebook for more updates.
