IT’S THIS TIME of year again when the flowers are blooming, the snow has melted (in most places), and everybody is enjoying the warmer weather. That’s right, it’s spring time and what happens in spring time?  Downtown Kamloops hosts the SpringFest on Mother’s Day. May 12 is when Springfest blooms.

What’s happening for Springfest this year? We have live music, a photographer (with a pretty amazing backdrop), a spring market, live local musicians, and more.

So bring Mom downtown and spoil her with brunch at her favourite restaurant, take her shopping at her favourite stores, gift her with a beautiful mini family photo session and take in the vendors at the Spring Market while listen to live music.

The Spring Market will feature artisans and crafters and is taking place at 560 Victoria Street. You’ll be able to pick up Mom something special from there for sure!

Emily-May Olson, of Emily-May Photography, will be taking Mama & Me mini photo Sessions at her beautiful booth. All VIP sessions have booked, but don’t worry, you can still drop in and get two family photos for $25.

As you stroll through downtown watch for live art demonstrations and installs as we celebrate the warmer weather and welcome spring to downtown.

This is all happening on Mother’s Day in downtown Kamloops, May 12. There will be so much more happening, so make sure to take your mother and your whole family to downtown Kamloops.  Enjoy some lunch and check out everything at the Springfest. For more information, visit

We’ll see you there!
