It’s A Party, It’s An Event, It’s A Celebration!
Canada/Snowbird Fest moves to indoor/outdoor location
Excitement is in the air for the third annual Canada/Snowbird Fest taking place Saturday, February 28 and Sunday, March 1 at their new location on the University of California Riverside campus in Palm Desert (corner of Cook and Frank Sinatra).
Produced by Bette King Productions, this year’s event promises to be even bigger and better as the UCR campus makes for an exciting indoor/outdoor venue featuring vendors, gourmet food trucks, displays, demonstrations, entertainment on two stages, a marketplace of unique products, and speaker forums. Top doctors in the field of integrative medicine will present new concepts for vital health, and celebrity authors, sports figures, and entertainment by well-known artists have been added.
There will be great food from both Canada and the U.S. along with a wonderful array of beer and wine, and of course, the famous Tim Horton coffee.
“We are also pleased to announce that we are honoring the Province of Nova Scotia this year,” said producer, Bette King, “and representatives from the Province will be here to promote their region’s industries, beauty and events.” Scheduled to appear are Nova Scotia Bureau of Tourism’s Bruce Bishop, and local attorney, Michael Brooks, who will be presenting information on cross-border taxation and issues that Canadians need to know.
Canada/Snowbird Fest will showcase the latest cars from Crystal Chrysler, new designs from Yamaha Golf Carts, new book authors, and the latest in medical services and technologies. Learn how to protect yourself with security demonstrations, try your hand on the potter’s wheel, see the beautiful works from famed artist Julie Okah, and enjoy animal encounters with The Living Desert’s live displays.
It is a wonderful opportunity to meet the people behind the commercials and ads you see locally, shake their hands, and see what special offers they are presenting to event attendees.
Also new this year is “Party On Canada/Snowbird Fest” (an added event separate from Canada/Snowbird requiring advance ticket purchase) featuring two intimate performances with famous songwriter and producer Dennis Lambert and Peter Beckett of the band Player (“Baby Come Back”). Lambert has written over 600 popular songs, many which will be performed by opening act Bethany Owens, famous impressionist and songstress known as the Woman of 1,000 faces.
Canada/Snowbird Fest will be a fun-filled celebration uniting us with our seasonal friends and neighbors who call the desert home this time of year. Come join the festivities!
