The Nakusp and Arrow Lakes region has many very active groups who are dedicated to creating and hosting all sorts of amazing events in our relatively small communities.
The BC Day long weekend in August always promises lots of activities in Nakusp, including a Softball Tournament.
Join us on July 1st in Nakusp, with a Pancake Breakfast by the volunteer firefighters, a parade, and then a variety of activities at the community park such as kid's races, games, a concession, and music in the gazebo. As the skatepark lies adjacent to the community park, it is not unusual for a skateboard competition to be held the same day. A fireworks show tops it all off just after dark.
Santa Claus Parade
Nakusp’s Santa Claus Parade in early December is a highlight for many children, and the evening is rounded out by a carol sing and hot refreshments

Ongoing events in the summer include ArtWalk in Nakusp, farmers’ markets in Nakusp and Edgewood, as well as Music In The Park every Wednesday evening, at the gazebo in Nakusp.
During winter the Arrow Lakes Ridge Riders hosts poker runs (on snowmobiles), one can try for “the big one” in the annual fishing derby, and the Arrow Lakes Arts Council hosts a series of fine cultural events such as pianists and plays.
