A COVID Safe Environment to Enjoy Kamloops.
Spring Back Festival 2021
See the calendar below for specific dates for Spring Back Festival!
Join us in celebrating the local merchants and live music in the core of our city!
Spring Back Fest celebrates local art and music live in the center of the city. This year instead of a three-day jam-packed program, we will be spacing it out over 22 days during the month of July and title it the Spring(back)fest. We will program the streets of downtown Kamloops with a rotating roster of local Musicians, with specific dates featuring special activities. On July 16, 17, and 18 we will shut down specific city blocks off Downtown with a stage featuring local performers, and a Downtown merchant’s market will the streets to encourage the community outdoors in a safe and inclusive way. We will also run sidewalk sales and promotions with local merchants, with a total of 22 local artists performing amongst the colourful display.
A Note about COVID
In 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic stopped all events and consequently, many artists have experienced financial repercussions with the cancellation. With BC’s Restart program, we are hopeful that Springfest will proceed in a safe manner that will accommodate the needs and speeds of everyone.
Why it is Important?
This project enhances the community by helping to establish and foster our cultural identity and appreciation of the arts.
Springfest 2021 combined program provides direct funding support to the BC music sector and opens opportunities for local musicians to connect with new audiences as other local musicians, promoters, BIAs, and the music industry at large.
