    Do you miss the love?  

    We do as well, but not to worry, we know all this is coming back soon.

    FestivalSeekers has it's 2020 calendar in hibernation for the next bit, considering so many of our friends, those festivals and events that we love to promote, are taking a pause.

    Bookmark this page, and trust we @FestivalSeekers will be back with a bustling calendar when the time is right.

    The right to come together to celebrate music, arts and culture is who we are as Canadians. 

    Promoting this awesome is what we do here @FestivalSeekers.

  • TakeItToTheLake

    Folks in Alberta’s northeast may be more humble and less self-promoting, but they are equally as deserving of attention.

    To help drive some attention to these very deserving creative spirits, FestivalSeekers & ZenSeekers are expanding our #TakeItToTheLake efforts by bringing you a new festival!

  • This summer's festivals are postponed, but that doesn't mean they're gone forever. We're getting stoked for next year's festivals - check out some amazing events to look forward to next year. 

  • This summer put your feet up at home, kick back on a lawn chair, or tune in from your desk to virtually explore local business and experiences in north eastern Alberta’s Lac La Biche County in the first-ever #LLBCOnline Festival

  • This year, Canada Day celebrations are more like a choose-your-own-adventure novel where you can end up in any number of cities for a virtual celebration. 

  • Just because we're sticking close to home, doesn't me we can't explore beyond.

    Try these 6 virtual festivals and events in June that will give you a new perspective on small-town Alberta, BC wine country, coastal creatures, music, and film.

  • Distant drumming and high, dusty falsetto singing carry on the wind. We pass through the shadows of the covered stands, sun gracing the meadows, swirls of colour flying in all directions as drums swell and surge, urging the dancers on. This is how I remember Canada Day 2019, arriving at the Beaver Lake Cree Nation's annual pow wow.

  • Blitzville

    Cranbrook, B.C. is ramping up the wow factor on Family Day Weekend with the new CBK-X Winter Blitzville. Not only is it a great basecamp for the long weekend to cram in your favourite winter sports like skiing and boarding, but now the city is offering an evening of spectacular demonstrations of athleticism, horsepower, and fireworks. And when we say fireworks – we mean Ka-BOOM!

  • A bucolic coastal landscape, where leaves turn the colour of sea kelp and the tide’s emerald sheen reflects the bright boughs of rugged conifers. It may seem peaceful, serene and even sleepy on the Sunshine Coast in autumn, but just as I watched honey bees buzz around a patch of purple flowers at the botanical gardens on a sun-kissed September morning, this region is a hive of activity - particularly in the fall.

  • The Huckleberry Festival at Castle Mountain Resort is the quintessential summer wrap-up party. With good times, great views, and huckleberries, it has become an annual tradition for many, including the Carmichaels, who are here for the 11th year in a row.

  • 5 acre shaker

    We all know when something is done right. You have that sense of contentment, and, in some cases, a feeling that you were a part of something pretty magical. Such is the case with the now five-year running Five Acre Shaker, a music festival with the best intentions as described by writer and photographer Chris Istace, the Mindful Explorer. His life’s work is curating and connecting with communities to tell their stories and help elevate your festival and travel experiences.

  • FestivalSeekers

    Ah yes, summer is here and it's finally festival season. But along with those super fun festivals comes pollution from cars, large amounts of trash, and tons of plastic water bottles. The good news is that we've created this list so that you can be a little more friendly to the environment this summer festival season.
