Ymir is a unique mountain town located in the heart of the Kootenays. We are 20 minutes south of Nelson and about 40 minutes away from Castlegar and Trail. We are also only minutes away from the US border.
We have a beautiful river that runs through town, scenic views and a flat, reclaimed railway trail for hiking. In Ymir you are truly surrounded by nature, another added bonus to coming to our festival.
*All camping and parking spots and are on a first come first served basis once you arrive on site*
Please leave your pets at home. There are absolutely no dogs allowed on the festival grounds or in the camping areas. If you bring a pet you will be denied entry to the festival.
