Kimberley Festivals and Events

Kimberley has a proud reputation for being a city of festivals!  One of the most well-known is JulyFest - for over 35 years the city has hosted sports tournaments with beer gardens and entertainment.  The festival presents The Canadian Boccee Championships and a homecoming parade which gets larger every year!


New festivals in the city have developed to adapt to a more global culture, offering events that appeal to a wide range of people and interests.  From the 'Dirtbag Photo and Film Festival,' where Kimberley's outdoor photographers and filmmakers share their work and adventures, to 'Arts on the Edge' that gathers painters, artists and performers from all around the Kootenays, the festivals in Kimberley always entertain!
