One of the top "10 Great Places to Get in Tune, Be Outdoors..."
Big mountains, small village, floating stage... the vibe of Kaslo in intimately amazing... with pristine wilderness as a backdrop, the musicians are perched on the edge of Kootenay Lake while onlookers swim around the stage, dance in the sand or recline on blankets laid in a natural, green amphitheater ...

Music In The Bay: Wonderful music, wonderful scenery, wonderful people ... it’ll be another unforgettable weekend at this year’s Kaslo Jazz Etc Festival. There will be bands from around the world playing in the outdoor natural amphitheatre of Kaslo Bay Park. This festival fills the air with music every year on the August long weekend; this year August 2-4.
The venue is breathtaking. Mountains rising over 10,000 feet from the lake are the backdrop for the performers. Musicians entertain from a floating stage in the bay. The audience can watch and listen while reclining on the sandy beach, or even while swimming in the water around the stage.
Food and craft vendors are on site at the park. You are welcome to bring your own picnic but no glass bottles will be allowed. Festival organizers are striving for a goal of zero waste, so vendors will be using all compostable plates and cups and recycling bins will be available.
