The Back Forty was the brainchild of some local musicians in an effort to “Keep Homemade Music Alive” in Southern Manitoba. It is held outdoors in Morden Park on the first Sunday in June and features an excellent blend of local and Manitoba musicians who share their talents through various workshops and on the main stage. Other activities are the Craft Village and Children’s Tent with various stations including Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre.
A day filled with Bluegrass, Country and Gospel Music played by talented local musicians and other surprised artists under the natural canopy of towering trees in the country side, south east of the City of Morden, Manitoba [one miles east of Morden, 6.5 miles south on road 27west (Mason School Road); driveway marker 6102Hwy]. Thanks for supporting our local artists through purchasing their music at the souvenir booth. Out of respect for our artists and audience smoking, umbrellas, pets and taping of music is not permitted in the concert area. Remember to bring your own lawn chair, relax and enjoy the music, meet your friends and make new ones.
