The community is invited to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day at two locations in Kamloops! These inclusive events, organized by community leaders and local organizations, invite everyone to join in commemorating the rich heritage, diverse traditions, and invaluable contributions of Indigenous peoples across Canada.

Everyone is welcome! These events serve as a platform for fostering understanding, promoting reconciliation, building bridges between communities, and ultimately having fun and making memories as we experience.

Riverside Park: From 10:00 am to 3:00 pm attendees can look forward to a day filled with live entertainment featuring jigging, fiddling, a drumming circle, and a live performance by local artist Joel West. Local organizations will be hosting various activities at their booths, including lahal, voyageur games, face painting, bouncy castles, and Elder’s bingo! The Bannock contest is guaranteed to make your mouth water and your stomach full! Food and beverages will be available throughout the day. Event link.
