WELCOME TO BEAUTIFUL KAMLOOPS
Kamloops, located in the BC Interior, is more than a city, it’s a state of mind. Resting on the shores of two picturesque rivers, the landscapes invite a sense of improvised adventure. The arts and culture scene is positively bursting at the seams. Find weird and wonderful back alley murals, take in a gallery exhibition. Discover your new favourite live artist at a variety of unique and intimate venues, absorb the sweet sounds of Music in the Park. Dive into the historical details through stories about infamous train robbers, cowboys, fur traders or spend an afternoon in the Kamloops Museum and Archives. Be amazed by twisty single-track bike trails and windy walkways. Poke around local shops and boutiques. Sample an assortment that promises to satisfy and satiate even the most discerning of palates. Indulge in a burgeoning bevy of wineries, craft breweries, restaurants and cafés that are overflowing with culinary enthusiasm and intensity. Kamloops is a city for every season. It’s a place for families, urban and rural adventurers to go off the grid and discover the unexpected along the way.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST
While it is free to attend the Kamloops International Buskers Festival, the performers do work for gratuities! Street performing is one of the most honest forms of entertainment - it allows you to watch the show, and then decide how much to pay for all that laughter and amazement. Each performer collects their own tips by passing a hat after their performance, which goes directly to that performer or act.
