PHOTOS: After two years, Harrison Festival of the Arts returns to Harrison Lake beachfront

Hundreds of festival-goers welcomed the iconic Harrison Festival back with open arms

The Harrison Festival of the Arts is back in full force for its 43rd year.

The Festival kicked off with a special tribute concert for the late Phyllis Stenson, who remains a posthumous pillar of the Festival itself as well as the broader Agassiz-Harrison arts and culture scene. Stenson passed away at the age of 74 in December 2020.

The first week saw a diverse set of world music performers. Additionally, an artisan market stretched along the shore of Harrison Lake as hundreds of visitors and residents enjoyed the festival.
