Cornstalk 1997 Concert Blenheim Ontario

April 6, 2017

Event: Cornstalk
Date: August 9th, 1997
Location: Blenheim Ontario
Cornstalk ran for a few years and was the biggest outdoor bash in the area during those years. Cornstalk drew 5000-8000 people.

Bands performing:
* Destroyer (Kiss tribute)
* Hells Bells (AC/DC Tribute)
* Exodus (Bob Marley Tribute)
* Electric Voodoo (Jimmi Hendrix Tribute)
* Hip Mission (Tragically Hip Tribute)
* Whaling (Neill Young Tribute)
* Chic Tunes
* Tangled Puppet (picture)
* Beggars Opera
* Foster Child (Picture)
* Rumblefish
* This End Up
* Social Slander
* Luxury Christ
* Square Root of Margaret (Picture)
* Evil Empire (R.A.T.M Tribute) (Picture)
* Gates of Rage (Picture)
Notes:
Outdoor parties of this nature were the norm in the 1990’s, put on by a private group or person, on private property. A typical party was 200-800 people, featuring live cover bands, a pig roast and a small $5 cover.

These events came to an end, an end of an era. Society had changed and law enforcement was cracking down. Add the liability, risks, insurance, bylaws, rising costs, permits, food & safety regulations, new staging laws, and the hassle of putting on such an event was no longer worth it unless the government was stepping in to make a profit off it.
