Between 150 and 200 people took part in the fifth annual Becoming Shiloh music festival at Serenity Center for the Performing Arts the weekend before last.
“It was great,” said Wilf Rothwell, one of the organizers. “The music was exceptional this year, as was the weather. We had a good time.”
People came from the Lower Mainland, the Okanagan, and elsewhere in the southern Interior to take part in the three-day festival, which featured a variety of gospel music for all ages.
Attendance grew during the first three years but seems to have leveled off, said Rothwell.
Musicians included the groups She Says Electric and The Liberty Band as well as singers Benjamin Dunn and Barclay West.
Vendors included one who was selling fair trade items from South Africa.
There was no charge to attend the event, other than by donation. No church sponsors the festival.
