Anticipation for this years Roots and Blues festival is heating up!

Since 1992 the Roots and Blues festival has drawn in performers and fans from around the world. This festival first started out as a small indoor festival, the result of the Shuswap Coffeehouse movement of the 1970s and ‘80s. From these roots grew the not-for-profit Salmon Arm Folk Music Society and an event that has something for everyone.

The festival features the Family Fun Zone, packed with activities to keep everyone in the family happy – face-painting, crafts, water balloons, sandboxes, and bouncy houses; a plethora of vendors; and over five different stages to choose from!

Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival lineup this year is proving to be one of the most anticipated; from the sounds of Five Alarm Funk, Blue Rodeo, and Sarah McLachlan.

Roots and Blues will roll out August 18-20, you don’t want to miss this!
