Springtime in the Similkameen Valley is a sight to behold. Our valley bursts with life, from the orchards and vineyards of Keremeos and Cawston to the rolling hills, rivers, waterfalls and mountainsides near Princeton. Our rivers run wild this time of year, and so do the animals that make this place home. Spring in the Similkameen Valley is a time to get outside and play. Explore our hike and bike trails and breathe in the fresh air, alive with the perfume of spring blossoms. Springtime is rodeo time here, and it’s also when our wineries dust off their bottles, ready to share samples of their best vintages. Come and take part in a full-immersion celebration of nature and wildlife at the Meadowlark Festival. It’s time to experience the Similkameen Valley your way. Learn more.
