“The Jibfest Weekender has proven itself as the premier winter event in Atlantic Canada since its inception in 2011. Located in various venues throughout Corner Brook, attendees get to ski all day and party all night with events organized by The Jibfest Weekender. In recent years Jibfest has attracted thousands of people, both province-wide and from across Canada.
Now in its 12th year, The Jibfest Weekender brings music and outdoor enthusiasts together through 3 days of entertainment. The inaugural and sophomore editions featured Newfoundland artists before the event graduated into showcasing national and international acts. The Jibfest Weekender has been growing annually bringing in fans from around Atlantic Canada with audiences upwards of 2000 people. Previously featured performances include Newfoundland Artists: Soap Opera, Ife Alaba, Dave Whitty, and Rum Ragged. Atlantic Canadian Artists: The Trews, Neon Dreams, Famba, Rich Aucoin, and Skratch Bastid. International Artists: Sammy Adams, 4Korners, Jump Smokers, and Keys n Krates.”
