Kaslo's Winter in the Forest Festival

Kaslo's Winter in the Forest Festival

Family Day festival in Kaslo BC

Every BC Family Day in February, from 10am-3pm, Kaslo hosts this fun festival in the grounds of Kaslo Airport.

The event typically includes kids games, street hockey, cross-country skiing (skis provided), snow painting, local musicians and entertainment, a woodsmen skills competition, human dogsled races and more.  Food and beverages are provided free of charge (donations welcome!) and usually includes bannock on a stick, homemade soups, stew, baked beans, chilli, hot chocolate and hot apple cider. There is also the most Canadian dessert of all time: maple taffy on the snow.

The Kaslo Community Forest Society and Kaslo Housing Society host this fun family festival, which is supported by the Province of British Columbia.
