Giddy Up for the Kamloops Cowboy Festival on March 16-19
Calling all cowpokes at Valleyview Manor Apartments in Kamloops: The Kamloops Cowboy Festival is returning for its 21st year in 2017! Taking over the city from March 16-19, the festival is one of the largest and most recognized of its kind in North America. The four-day event promises special performers, seminars about everything from songwriting and poetry to how to pick a custom hat, and a huge artisan show. The event is produced by the BC Cowboy Heritage Society, which was established in the late '90s with the goal of preserving cowboy culture and heritage.
All-access tickets for the entirety of the festival are $80 and include everything but the special dinner theater events, which must be purchased separately. A one-day pass with dinner theater costs $75. You can also purchase day passes that will just give access to the general performances, seminars, and artisans for only $25.
