The 3rd annual Blessed Coast Music, Yoga & Arts Festival will be hosted from July 28 to July 31st on unceded Coast Salish Territory, in beautiful Squamish, BC. The gathering opens in ceremony with our Indigenous Hosts and Elders, and is both family-friendly and powered by renewable energy, with solar-powered sound stages!

All this takes place along the Cheekye River with access to a sand beach on a swimmable back eddy stream.
Working with lineage holding coast salish elders to bring the ancient ways of communal ceremony into the modern context of celebration, is an important part of what we do and why we are different from other festivals. In our work with these elders each of our staff and guests is acting on behalf of their own ancestry, in this cocreation of culture.
We invite you to 3 days of Riverside and Meadow Camping, World-Class Music, and Illuminating Workshops with BC’s most inspired Wisdom and Yoga Teachers. Kids under 12 are free, and we offer a full schedule of family activities and entertainment. 3-Day Camping and Day Passes, Early-bird Pricing, and RV and Car Camping are all available. Camping spaces are limited, so book yours soon.
We joyously anticipate your arrival on the land in Squamish!
