Here in the Peace Country of Alberta, where the winters are long and the snow often starts in late September, we savour every minute of summer. And even though back-to-school is just over the horizon, there is still plenty of sweet summer sun to soak up and plenty of fun to be had at events across the North Peace County. 

Lakeshore Motorsports Demolition Derby – Kinuso, AB – Aug 23-25
You can count on plenty of show-stopping collisions at the Lakeshore Motorsports Demolition Derby—the only motor sport where crashes are encouraged. In addition to steel-crushing displays of automotive aggression, the event will feature a battle of the bands, prize draws and performances by house band Boot Leg Saints.

Fairview Summer’s End Festival – Fairview, AB – Aug. 24
Before you say goodbye to summer, head to the town of Fairview for their annual celebration of music, art and entertainment. Featuring an open-air market, food vendors, children’s activities and all manner of live performances, the festival offers something for everyone.
