Wind Festival blows into Squamish

Last year, Squamish's Wind Festival for the Arts drew a record 4,000 people downtown for music, workshops and even a little shopping at the artisan market.

This year, the free event is back and bigger than ever, running from July 18 to 20 in Junction Park.

Then on Friday, July 19, check out Movie Under the Stars from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. for a free outdoor screening. Finally, come back on Saturday, July 20, for a jam-packed schedule that includes musical acts Jon and Roy, Old Soul Rebel, John Welsh & Los Valientes, Norman Foote and Ira Pettle.

There will also be face painting, a kid's zone, food trucks, balloons and live painting on site.

Put on by the Squamish Arts Council, you can also check out a live carving demonstration, make a eucalyptus wreath and screen print a t-shirt (BYO-t-shirt).
