Festivals and events
There is always something going on in Fort Smith, where there is something for everyone.
The Wood Buffalo Frolics winter carnival in mid-March helps wave farewell to winter and welcome spring. The whole community gathers for Canada Day festivities in July, with an enthusiastic parade and delicious fish fry. The renowned South Slave Friendship Festival in mid-August features musicians from Fort Smith and across the North.
There are hockey tournaments, sno-cross snowmobile races, a ski loppet, and ice fishing derby in the winter. In the summer, slo-pitch softball tournaments, the Pine Lake Picnic, and kayaking PaddleFest keep residents and visitors busy.
See the Events calendar for more information.
