Welcome to the Similkameen ValleyBritish Columbia, Canada
Rugged. Rustic. Real.

Rugged. Rustic. Real.

From the fruit stands of Keremeos and Cawston, to the wild grass meadows of Princeton's cattle country, the air is alive with the honeyed song of bees in spring. Spring harkens the return of a whole roster of events. Rodeos return to the valley beginning at Easter with the Chopaka Rodeo, May's Elk's Rodeo, and the annual Stan Thompson Memorial Rodeo in Princeton. Taste award-winning wines when Syp, Syp, Syrah returns to Seven Stones Winery. Get outside and explore spring's soft trails at Manning Park, Cathedral Lakes, and at China Ridge, or paddle the Similkameen when the river's currents run their fastest.
