It’s a summer of festivals!

British Columbia residents certainly count themselves lucky in the summer, when every weekend presents a new batch of festivals to choose from. Each year, more and more small festivals are popping up in small communities around the province, and established festivals are just getting better and better. Which festivals are you visiting this summer? Here’s just a taste of what’s coming up over the next few weekends. 

Kaslo Jazz Festival: August 2 - 4

The Kaslo Jazz Festival heads into its twenty second year, a testament to its far-reaching popularity. This festival is set against the edge of Kootenay Lake. Listen to jazz, folk, roots and rock while laying on the beach or swimming around the stage. Artists include Dehli 2 Dublin, Tiempo Libre, Dan Brubeck Quartet, Paul Peress Trio, African Showboyz and the Mickey Hart Trio. Get your tickets online.

Shambhala Music Festival, Nelson BC: August 7 - 12
Shambhala Music Festival must be experienced to be believed. Amazingly, there are a still a few tickets left, so think about it! It’s an incredible spectacle - it’s all about sensory overload. With five incredibly elaborate stages, incredible costumes, a plethora of awesome vendors, and an amazing sense of community, this festival is not to be missed. Do you love dancing? Get ready to get sweaty. 

Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival: August 16-18

The Roots & Blues Festival is a total crowd-pleaser for all ages. Celebrating its 21st birthday, the festival is amazingly well-organized and affordable. The lineup is always super: this year includes Rita Chiarelli, Bruce Cockburn, City and Colour, Daniel Lanois, Mississippi Heat, Harry Manx, Watasun and Skratch Bastid. Camping is close and friendly, the food and art vendors are outstanding, and the workshops provide something for everyone. Organizers put on ‘Routes & Blues’ outreach events in neighbouring small towns, which are intimate and lovely celebrations of music, culture and community. Visit their website for info and tickets.

Kona House of the Big Wheel Part 3 on Pinkbike

If this doesn’t get you jazzed up about summer, we can’t help you. Check out this amazing Kona video, and make sure to read through the article as well for some incredible pics. Which trail do you prefer, Frisby Ridge or Keystone? 


If you ski in the Golden area, this video is a great reminder that you’ve got to know what the snowpack is doing where you are before you commit to terrain. In the Monashees and Selkirks, we’ve had a bit more snow with less wind, leaving the Feb. 3/4 surface hoar layer intact. It lit up last week with avlanahces up to size 2.5. Make sure to check the avalanche forecast for your region at
