Pellsqepts Spring Winds Festival 2024

Pellsqepts Spring Winds Festival 2024

Join us on Saturday, March 23, 2024 at the Splatsin Centre (  5767 Old Vernon Road, Enderby BC) for this FREE festival and celebration of our local Indigenous Culture.
The annual festival brings music, traditional dancing, artisan vendors, food trucks, open stick games, face painting and more to visitors from all backgrounds and walks of life.
Everyone is invited.
On stage this year are Dakelh singer/songwriter Sabina Dennis, contemporary Indigenous rock and hip-hop group The Melawmen Collective, world champion hoop dancer Dallas Arcand, comedian and champion chicken dancer Conway Kootnay, acoustic rockers Horse Funeral, the All My Relations First Nations Dance Group and Rhonda Camille with Secwepemc song and dance.
“We are thrilled to be featuring many artists from our local Secwepemc and Sylix nations in coordination with the SAFMS and ROOTSandBLUES staff,” says Thomas. “This is a showcase to bring the outside world into our communities, into our ‘rez’ and show them what we’re all about.”
Food trucks will be on-site throughout the festival, while vendors, artists and Secwepemc volunteers and educators share Indigenous ways of knowing and being.
