Smithers, Festivals & Events
A part of the reason I love living in northern British Columbia and in a smaller town is the accessibility of fantastic events to where I live.
Just down the road in the Kispiox valley is one of the best music festivals in the province. The Kispiox Valley Music Festival boasts great acts, great location, and great people.
I camped there all weekend, from Friday to Sunday, and loved every minute of it. From the family atmosphere to the spectacular acts, I was thoroughly impressed by all the hard work that was put into making this weekend awesome.
Dancing under the stars at night at the main stage, eating great food from the vendors, and hanging out with friends is what made this festival great. I even jumped in the Kispiox river - very quickly, I might add. Some of the acts included Saritah, the Fuzzcats and Mamaguroove. Maybe I’ll see you there next year!
