Summerfest 2022 kicks off Friday night


Deep River Summerfest is back!

After four long years, the Summerfest committee is rolling back the clock to bring you the Summerfest that you know and love this long weekend.

The fun kicked off Friday night with the start of the three-pitch ball tournament at Grouse Park at 6 pm, followed by the Friday night lineup on the main stage at the campus beginning at 7 pm.

Above, the Over 40 Garage Band was keeping the crowd hopping at 10 pm before Friday night closers, Ghost Town Cryers.

For the full schedule of this weekend’s events, pick up a copy of this week’s NRT.

Although many things have changed since the last festival was held in 2018, Deep River Summerfest has decided to continue keeping things affordable and stick to offering $20 wristbands and $5 beer!

You can also expect to enjoy all the familiar favourites like the food trucks, car show, fireworks, local vendors, and music all weekend long.

With a long list of sponsors making this year’s festival possible, be sure to get out and join the fun.
