The town may be quiet, but some of our best events happen in the fall:
The Garlic Festival: Our small town gem, this annual festival is held at a local farm, Track Street Growers. With activities for the kids and live music throughout the day, come enjoy a meal from local vendors, and shop local arts, crafts jams, hot sauce and more. My favourite is the Chicken Bingo! (I will leave this fun highlight to your imagination…)
Luna Art Fest: Bringing art and energy to the streets of Revelstoke, discover over 30 art installations placed within the downtown core. With live shows, music, beer gardens and constant surprises, this free event transforms Revelstoke in to a fantastic art display.
With the cool crisp mountain air what better way to spend an afternoon or evening soaking and relaxing in pools of hot mineral water.
Halfway Hot Springs: These all-natural hot springs are a must see! Relax and escape into nature with these off the grid, hot mineral water pools. Enjoy a handful of different pools of different temperatures, with the Halfway River running alongside if you are brave enough for a cold dunk!
Halcyon Hot Springs: Claiming to be some of the “most restorative hot spring waters” in North America, this gorgeous resort is a real pleasure to visit. A pristine setting surrounded by forest and stunning views of the river and surrounding mountain ranges, the views and atmosphere are as restorative as the water.
The best part of visiting Revelstoke in the fall is getting the local experience. Skip the lines and crowds and embrace the friendly culture and charm of quiet small-town mountain life and the beauty of white peaked mountains and glowing red and gold trees.
