The Kootenay Stay-cation Festival celebrates local tourism, showcasing that students and their families do not need to travel far to experience relaxing and adventurous destinations.
We are also highlighting the impact that international, far off vacations have on the environment in the form of carbon emissions and climate change.
Local, Kootenay environmentally friendly tourist destination groups will each have a table at this festival to share the unique, sustainable experiences that can be had right here in the Kootenays.
