Welcome to The #BuyBasin Festival. The Columbia Basin has plenty of reasons to toot its own horn in any season with its abundance of nature and beauty and laid-back small-towns and cities vibe. These communities from Invermere to Nelson and Valemount and beyond are also home to some pretty cool businesses that you need to know more about.
From March 23 to April 30, join us for a series of Facebook Live events that will showcase dozens of local businesses and services during the #BuyBasin Festival.
You could win $100 to spend at the local business of your choice. Learn more here.
Local businesses interested in joining the #BuyBasin Festival can apply here.
Cool part is you can shop without leaving your home or office, eat without stepping into the kitchen and connect with your community all in one tap of your keyboard. The month-long event is a fun way to meet your 100 local creators, entrepreneurs and artists and support them by buying local.
Consider this your invitation to join an array of locals as we celebrate the passions of the people behind the scenes who bring you goods and services created right here in this beautiful backyard.
