North Thompson Valley Events

Come on in, make yourself at home. In the North Thompson Valley, we celebrate a place where wilderness is just a step away — and you can too.

Sun Peaks

Venture into Sun Peaks in winter to taste your way through the village during the Winter Okanagan Wine Festival, or tap your toes to the beats during the Summer Concerts or annual Alpine Blossom Festival.

Barriere, Lower North Thompson

In Barriere, western pride is celebrated every Labour Day long weekend with the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo, check out other events at the Agriplex throughout the year.

Clearwater Wells Gray

If the great outdoors is where you like to party, hop on over to Clearwater and join in for the return of the salmon and experience First Nations tradition during the Simpcw First Fish Ceremony. Make a splash at the Clearwater Canoe Regatta, located on beautiful Dutch Lake in Clearwater’s centre. Look to the skies and join astronomers as meteors burn through the sky during the annual Stargazing Festival.


Let the mountains move you in Valemount during Valemountain Days every June. Grab a dance partner and get ready to boogie during the Robson Music Festival in August, with music for everyone. Hit the trail running in September, for the Mount Robson Marathon.
