About Us


The Salmon Arm Children's Festival began over 25 years ago in
Fletcher Park by the Naylor Family and friends.
It has grown into one of Salmon Arm's favourite family events thanks to the "newest" co-chairs Karen Bubola and Kari Wilkinson and the incredible core team of Heather O'Brien, Mindy Reid, Rachel Mooney, Jen Findlay, June Stewart and Cheryl Leite.
Join us at the Salmon Arm North Fairgrounds July 1st, 10AM - 3PM.

Our Goal

The Salmon Arm Children's Festival Society will continue to hold the annual Canada Day festival at the north end of the Salmon Arm Fall Fairgrounds. Our society is committed to offering a FREE festival that is open to kids and families of all ages and income levels. Most activities on-site are free - including bouncy houses, sand box, wood-working, science explorations, paint the car, fire truck, music, dance and more. Carnival games are offered at 50 cents per game.

The only vendors on-site offer food - including hot dogs, pizza, water, freezies and other miscellaneous items. Families are welcome to bring their own picnic lunch.
