The Chamber presented their Annual Report to the City of Salmon Arm on March 26th and shared the success of our mobile visitor centre program which launched last July. This newly created outreach program provided staff with the occasion to directly seek out tourists and locals to chat about the many attractions, events and recreation available within our City and region. Plans are in the works to expand the existing program for 2018 and to build further on our social media presence by way of live video interviews and footage.

Shuswap Theatre is proud to offer their final show of the season, Perfect Pie, a story about two close childhood friends that meet for an afternoon of reminiscing. Reflecting on their childhood and turbulent teen years, they revisit the traumatic event that marked them both, and set them each on a different track. Running in Salmon Arm from April 27-May 12 and then at Okanagan Zone Festival in Vernon during the week of May 20-26. Tickets are on sale at

The annual Salty Street Festival takes place Saturday, May 12th from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm on Hudson Street in downtown Salmon Arm. This festival continues to grow each year and is loaded with great family-oriented activities like the famous kid’s bike parade where youngsters decorate their bikes and ride down Hudson Avenue for a chance to win a prize from The Candy Vault – a favourite stop for everyone with a sweet tooth!

The pie-eating contest is another crowd-pleaser and why not when you get to chow down on a delicious pie, hand-made and donated by Shuswap Pie Company! Face-painting, petting zoo, street musicians and more! If you are looking to trade in or trade up – the Shuswap Cycle Club hosts its annual bike swap at the Festival – it’s a great time to check out new bikes and gear with all the bike suppliers who are on-site.
