Emerald Junction Summerfest is a small community festival held in the center of Prince Edward Island. This small community of only 285 people gather together to host a nearly 1,500 festival-goers each year. This new and exciting event replaced the ten year old Emerald Junction Irish Festival and Emerald Weekend which started back in 1973. With the name change to “Summerfest”, they can now offer a wider range of entertainment. The festival will be held on July 25th-26th, 2008. Residents like to have fun and show their community spirit with a “Junk Yard Wars” competition held Saturday afternoon and a party Saturday night. The entire festival is licensed, although there is a children's tent and under 19 area in the performance tent during the day and early evenings.

Emerald Junction Summerfest is currently accepting submissions from Sonicbids artists for general performance consideration. They usually book 7-8 performers for the event. All performances take place in a large tent in a former rail yard. They will provide professional sound and lights as well as lodging when required, however their budget for compensation is limited.
