What makes Slave Lake the spot to be? Two of the summer’s most popular Peace Region events: Riverboat Daze and the Slave Lake Music Fest.

Riverboat Daze

From July 4-6, tourists and residents alike will take part in Slave Lake’s 50th Anniversary of Riverboat Daze. Known locally as “Rubberboot Daze,” this popular annual event celebrates the region’s rich history, when riverboats brought settlers and supplies to the north. This year's schedule has something everyone in the family can enjoy.

 

• Farmer's Market: Taste the region's freshest food and buy from hundreds of local artisans
• West Coast Amusements: Ride thrilling attractions and test your luck with a wide selection of midway games
• Fireworks: Watch as the night over the town becomes a brilliant light display
• Parade: See dozens of floats on this year's theme of "Summer Fun in Rubber Boots."

Slave Lake Music Fest

The highlight of the entire Riverboat Daze weekend is the Slave Lake Music Fest. This two day event on July 4 & 5, features local to international artists performing everything from electronic and traditional rock, to country. Tickets for either the Friday or Saturday show are $60 and weekend passes are available for $100 each.

On Friday the line-up includes The Drivers, The Revival, Nazareth and The Sheepdogs.

Saturday will bring William O'Donnell & Richard Woodman ft. Stacy Stiles, Meltdown, Boom Chucka Boys and Gord Bamford.

Don’t miss out on the hotbed of activities. Plan your Slave Lake weekend today.
