The weather may have been gloomy, but that didn’t stop Abbotsford residents from attending the 35th annual Berrybeat Festival in downtown Abbotsford on July 9 and 10.
For three-and-a-half decades, the Berrybeat Festival has been one of Abbotsford’s summertime destinations for live music, family activities, local artisans, and, of course, locally grown berries.

In previous years, the festival featured live music on a number of different stages around the event, including Jam in Jubilee and CiVL Radio stages. However, this year the festival only featured the Abbotsford Community Stage, sponsored by A&D Music. Musical acts included Fiddlin’ Frenzy, Horizon, Topaz, as well as Fleetwood Mac and Abba tribute bands.
The lack of sunshine resulted in the festival having a lower attendance than usual, but for those who attended, it was the perfect way to spend the weekend and support local businesses and art in Abbotsford.
