About the festival September 2>5
Hosted proudly On First Nations Sməlqmíx / Syilx Territory Similkameen Valley
The legends of Sasquatch go back beyond recorded history, you can hear tales of seven-foot-tall hairy creatures stalking the woods, occasionally unknowingly scaring campers, lumberjacks, hikers and festival goers alike from the Similkameen Tribe people in the area.
Sasquatch is known by many titles although the name Yeti & Bigfoot is generally attributed to the mountainous Western region of North America the common name Sasquatch comes from the Salish Sasquits, while the Algonquin of the north-central region of the continent refer to a Witiko or Wendigo. Other nations tell of a large creature much like a man but imbued with special powers and characteristics. The Ojibway of the Northern Plains believed the Rugaru appeared in times of danger and other nations agreed that the hairy apparition was a messenger of warning, telling man to change his ways. While we can’t promise you will see an actual Sasquatch on your visit to our festival we can promise you a thrilling adventure of a lifetime that dives deep into the aboriginal culture thru song and dance along the Similkameen river and Valley.
