After 10 successful years of That 60s Show, the Back 40 Festival has decided to change the format of our annual fundraiser.

Those Were the Days: 1970-1995 will cover music tributes from all different genres from some of the finest musicians to come out of those 25 years.

Back 40 Folk Festival holds their annual fundraiser “Those Were the Days: 1970-1995” in the middle of March, at the PW Enns Centennial Concert Hall in Winkler.  Get a sneak peak at the spring festival line up, a night of nostalgic tributes performed by today’s local musicians, and every ticket sold makes the spring festival possible!

2013 Tributes and the musicians performing them were as follows:

The Rolling Stones……………….Rock and Rollkuchen
