Sun Peaks Resort is known for its ski and snow culture. But when the snow melts it becomes an alpine village surrounded by mountains blanketed in green meadows dotted by dainty flowers. It’s the perfect setting for summer music concerts. Attend the concerts, but along with the lawn chairs, pack the hiking shoes, golf clubs, mountain bike, paddle board and swim gear. This place rocks with or without your skis. Share this page on Twitter.

Check out what’s in store this season
Iconic Canadian band 54.40 will perform in Sun Peaks as part of the Summer Concert Series for 2017.
54.40 will help celebrate Canada Day 150 right with a free concert. If you grew up in the 90's, it is likely that songs like 'Ocean Pearl' and 'I Go Blind' were part of the soundtrack to your childhood. They've been around for over 30 years and had over a million records sold. Their music is still played on the airways today. On Saturday, July 1, see them live on an outdoor stage.
Free outdoor concert at 6:00pm.

Aug. 26 - Trooper
Sun Peaks Resort welcomes Trooper on Saturday, August 26, for the final installment of our 6th Annual Summer Concert Series!
It goes like this: millions of records, a couple dozen hits, a Juno Award for Band of the Year and ongoing sold-out shows across Canada. Universal Music acknowledges them as "one of Canada's top five selling bands of all time" and the Vancouver Sun has called them "Canadian rock heroes of the first order ... the best performing band in Canada".
The best part? All of the concerts are free, unless you'd like VIP seating and the stage is within walking distance of any accommodations in the village. It’s a picturesque venue that will cap off a perfect summer of festival fun at Sun Peaks.
General access is free, however, grab a Front of Stage Access (FSA) Seated Area for $35 a ticket. BOOK ONLINE
