Kootenay Festival is a multi-faceted event encouraging the recognition and appreciation of community diversity through entertainment, cuisine and interactive educational activities, displays and performance. The festival provides our residents and summer visitors an outstanding opportunity to experience and celebrate the heritage, culture, ethnicity and artistic expression that enriches the Kootenay region and makes us proud to call it our home.
Slocan Park, BC
An unincorporated village, Slocan Park was first settled in 1913 because of its cleared land, a railway siding and nearby sawmills. The sawmills and railway are now gone. The rail bed, however, has become the Slocan Valley Heritage Trail (also called the Rail Trail), a popular biking and cross-country skiing trail which stretches 50 km from South Slocan to Slocan Lake.
