The Friends of Hank Snow Society has formed a special Relocation Committee is investigating solutions to bring the Tribute, a 4-day, 2,500-attendee music festival home.
“It takes an enormous amount of time and planning, along with a new identity, weekend format, RV parking and amenities, shuttle system, a new venue as well as dealing with funding and rising costs,” says administrator Kelly Inglis.
The Hank Snow Tribute is also the major fundraiser that earns operational revenue for the Hank Snow Home Town Museum.
Inglis says this year they have begun the process of applying to join the Community Museum Assistance Program, a program organized through the Association of Nova Scotia Museums, which will provide some stability.
“We are meeting with local and regional government, businesses, and organizations to work together,” she says.
Also important says Inglis is the community input. She says they want to hear from people on their suggestions, comments, and if they are interested in volunteering in any way.
“What new events could you see becoming part of the Tribute’s new identity? What musicians or bands would you love to see?” she says.
