Please be informed:

In the interest of public safety, we would like to inform our guests and the public, that there is an evacuation alert near the festival grounds. We are currently communicating with local government to stay ahead of the situation.

BC Wildfire Service is currently fighting the fire with considerable force including 20 firefighters, 4 helicopters, 1 heavy equipment and 4 air tankers.

What does this mean to our guests?

While this does not currently affect the festival, all guests should be prepared for changing conditions.

What can you do?

  1. Talk with your friends about an early departure in case things change.
  2. Plan to have a well-rested designated driver throughout the festival.
  3. Stay informed.
