Battle of the Bands on Fri, June 1st was a huge success - with five great bands - Secret Sins to Dust, Forever More, Silent Amber, Margot and 3rd Pew. The Creative Youth Council and Katimavik volunteers partnered up in providing a fun trivia with prizes for guests to enjoy, did face painting and also made sure people knew when their orders were coming up. Bumpers provided some free coupons for ice cream treats and turned out to be a great venue with lots of space for the large number of supporters who came out to enjoy the music, food and activities.

We'd like to thank the community of Steinbach and surrounding towns who came out to support local youth at this epic event. We're expecting a lot more great events from our Creative Youth Council, who will also be on-site in the ART ZONE during the Summer in the City Festival, June 15 & 16. The ART ZONE is located in the Main Stage compound.

Our Battle of the Bands winners 3rd Pew will also be at Summer in the City, performing on the Prudential Main Stage at 3:40pm on Saturday afternoon. Margot, one of the other Battle of the Bands contestants, will also be performing on the Main Stage - Friday afternoon at 3:45pm. is Steinbach's only source for community news and information such as weather and classifieds.
