Traveling via Highway 17

Live from the Rock Folk Festival, Red Rock, August 11-13th

Festivals can’t get much more family-friendly than this! “Multiple musicians/bands grace the stage at the same time and each take turns playing songs according to the workshop theme. The musicians often join in on each others songs, which makes music that is unique and original and often never heard again. They feed off each other’s stories and songs and you as an audience member often get the chance to sing along or sit back and watch the magic unfold.”

Wilderness North Pairing:

  • 5 nights Strikers Point Full-service Lodging. Spaces available August 6-11th.
  • 4 nights Miminiska Full-service Lodging. Spaces available August 14th-18th
