Ever wonder what life is like in a place where the pace is slower, Nature is closer, and people friendlier? Here’s your chance to find out — and spend the Canada Day 2018 long weekend — June 29 through July 2 — in what has been called “the loveliest village in British Columbia” — Kaslo — courtesy of the BC Rural Centre!

Kaslo, home to the Kaslo Jazz Etc. Festival (described in USA Today as one of the top-10 outdoor summer music festivals in the world)  is located in southeastern BC’s West Kootenay region, a hour’s drive north of Nelson, 15 minutes from Ainsworth Hot Springs.



Our winners (families are welcome) will receive four nights at the beautiful Kaslo Hotel, overlooking the sparkling waters of fjord-like Kootenay Lake, meals, and a travel stipend. Should you win, you’ll meet some fascinating locals, granting you an insider’s look into small town life, making for a memorable holiday weekend for you & yours.

How to win?

Just fill in the form below, and briefly tell us why you’d like to visit Kalso this summer — we’ll announce the winners on May 1st!
