Revelstoke’s Wildflower Festival goes from August 3 until August 7, 2022, and visitors and residents can find several events all over town to celebrate the vibrant season.
Tourism Revelstoke and Parks Canada offer free shuttles from downtown Revelstoke to the summit area of Mt. Revelstoke National Park for the Wildflower Festival from August 3 – August 7. The shuttle drops passengers off at the Balsam Lake parking area. Riders will have time to explore the summit and attend Parks Canada’s Alpine Adaptations Guided Wildflower walks, running twice daily. The walks detail how the alpine flowers have adapted to living in the harsh alpine environment.
Parks Canada also hosts a DIY watercolour station during the festival, where visitors can paint the natural beauty of the wildflower season.

Tourism Revelstoke also lists some self-serve activities visitors, and wildflower enthusiasts can do for an independent adventure.
