As the Canadian chill starts to settle in, the city of Kelowna, British Columbia, ignites with the vibrant celebration of the Fireside Festival. Known for its captivating performances, delicious food, and an ambiance that truly reflects the Canadian spirit, this festival is a must-attend for anyone visiting BC in the winter.

Dates and Venue

The Fireside Festival is typically held in January/February over a weekend. The festival is outdoors at Red Bird Brewing and indoors at BNA Brewing. Tickets can be purchased online from the official Fireside Festival website. We strongly recommend purchasing tickets in advance, as the event tends to sell out quickly.

Lineup and Performances

The festival is renowned for featuring a mix of local and international folk artists, with previous years boasting names like Joni Mitchell, The Strumbellas, and City and Colour. There is usually a stellar line up of emerging music artists to enjoy. Performances usually start in the afternoon and continue into the late evening, so be prepared for a day filled with enchanting music.


There are numerous hotels and B&Bs within walking distance of the festival grounds. Many of them offer special festival packages, which often include tickets and transportation. It's advisable to book your accommodation well in advance due to the popularity of the event.

Additional Tips

  • Dress warmly and in layers. Part of the festival is held outdoors, and temperatures can drop in the evening.
  • Plan your transportation. Public transport is available, and ride-share services are also an option.
  • Stay updated. Follow the festival's social media platforms for real-time updates on performances, weather conditions, and other festival news.
