Western Canada – Roots Music Festivals

Planning on attending Folk/Roots music Festivals, in western Canada, this year?

Since the 1980’s western Canada has become a hot-bed of roots based music and hosts a fabulous selection of roots and folk music festivals. Many of these festivals are in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and northern Canada (Yukon and the Northwest Territories).

The festivals feature top industry performers, from around the world, as well as the amazing talent developed in our own country! To provide regional visitors with regional sounds and songwriting flair, many of these festivals also feature local favourites.

MS Bike Fund Raising

MS Bike is the largest fund raising cycling series in North America and it’s the experience of a lifetime! No matter where in Canada you ride, you’ll feel the contagious energy of MS Bike cyclists along the journey especially when you cross the finish line and celebrate! Every year since 1989, cyclists of all ages and fitness levels across Canada get together to end Canada’s disease: multiple sclerosis. Join us at this event full of excitement, challenge and community and we know you’ll leave with a sense of great accomplishment.

Our events are fully supported with rest stops, water, snacks, and support staff to make sure you and your bike are in the best shape possible to complete the event. We’re also here to help you with your fund raising along the way as you get ready for the big day.

Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world. And when you join MS Bike, you join our country’s collective effort to help improve the lives of Canadians affected by MS. The dollars you raise are invested in world-leading MS research happening right here in Canada research that will bring us closer than ever to the first treatment for progressive MS and ultimately a cure for the disease. It’s an exciting time for MS research, and your participation will keep the momentum going.
