Desert Daze Music Festival
Spences Bridge BC
Aug 12th & 13th, 2016
Two days of music and workshops, shopping, and fun and games! The festival is jam packed with music and fun! Friday kicks off at 1:30 pm with the Siska Drummers - Indigenous drummers open the festival with traditional welcome songs. The musical line-up represents emerging local and regional talent. Styles vary from country, blues, folk, pop, rock, and everything in between — something for everyone!
And…Our beer garden is situated such that you can see and hear the bands while enjoying your refreshments! It’s more than music though; we like to celebrate the bounty that this sundrenched country provides. Watermelon spitting and apple bobbing contests, pickling and tomato canning workshops — and vendors supplying the local produce they grow. You will also find fine jewellery, clothing and crafts and fantastic food for sale.
Other workshops include a drumming workshop, so bring your djembes, hand drum, rattles and shakers! Sean Ashby will be holding a guitar workshop for anyone wishing to get a few tips on improving their style, and there's a Yoga workshop, to get you limbered up for dancing! All workshops are FREE!
This is a family event and to that end there is a supervised children’s area with sprinklers to run in and games to play! Saturday not only will Kiki the Eco Elf perform for the kids, but there will be fun experiments for them to take part in!
Tickets are only $20 for a weekend pass! For further information please go to www.desertdaze.ca or call 250-458-2282
