Full Event Calendar

When We Throw a PartyIt's a Big One


The Special Event Calendar around Rossland is surprisingly diverse for a city this size. We have the longest-running Winter Carnival in Canada that is as offbeat and unpredictable as our locals. We have a film festival, a craft beer festival, and a top-secret Festivus guild. You can catch bands with half a million Twitter Followers and local bands with one annoying little sister following them around.

Rossland's four season joie de vivre is a natural outgrowth of the type of people our town attracts in the first place: work hard/play hard; wonderful weirdos; gourmet grinders; artsy athletes; fun families; colourful characters…
