Arts on the Fly
Arts on the Fly summer music and art festival is held in Horsefly BC. It takes over the entire town with four stages of live music, workshops, a vendor market full of local artisan goods, and fantastic food.
How does a community in the far reaches of BC, get known around the world for producing some of the best banjo’s around? Horsefly, just outside of Williams Lake BC is full of discoveries.
This is a festival that get the whole town involved and attracts people from all around the region for good reason.
For one, there is the stellar line up of musical talent that have performed at this event. (Also, if you're wondering how people from Horsefly refer to themselves, they're Horseflynians.)
And there is no cell service and the festival area has no wifi, so bring cash, set your notifications to "off" and tell your boss you'll be offline for the weekend!
