À propos de ce festival
The Ponderosa Arts & Music Festival is the creation of Kris Hargrave and Kia Zahrabi. Two friends who had a vision of creating a unique festival experience in an absolutely breathtaking setting. This vision started off with a simple conversation on the power of music and how it brings people together. Talks began after an orchard party at the family farm in the Okanagan Valley during the summer of 2012. What started off as a gathering of a couple dozen close friends quickly turned into a long weekend party of nearly 100, playing music, tubing down the river, camping under the stars, and eating mouth-watering fresh fruits right off of the tree. That vision morphed into a dream to put on a summer festival – a dream that became a reality last August at the first annual Ponderosa Arts & Music Festival in Rock Creek, BC.
The location, the arts, the food, the story, and of course, the music all contribute to the one of a kind festival experience that is Ponderosa. We feel so passionate about this project and take every opportunity to bring something genuine and pure to those who attend – bringing back the true meaning of ‘hosting’ a party. This is what we feel has, and will separate us from other music festivals. We are striving to maintain a certain vibe and are looking to build a sense of community that we feel has faded from most of the larger outdoor music events.
So if you're looking for a new and improved festival experience, make your way out the Ponderosa Arts & Music Festival this August.
