See you next year!

Well Heck.

This is your public service announcement that Arts on the Fly 2020 is officially cancelled. The good Doctor has spoken! We were so close to announcing our lineup before the pandemic hit, and whoo-wha it was a good one. We will be inviting all 2020 artists back next year (or whenever the opportunity allows).

As sad and strange of a time it's been, being part of the festival industry and watching the reaction to this pandemic has been incredible. There's an undeniable unity that makes my heart flutter. The base intention of our little festival is connection, and though festivals are cancelled, we're feeling more connected than ever.

Thank you to the community of Horsefly, our patrons from afar, all the amazing volunteers and contractors, and of course the wildly talented artists for supporting 13 years of Arts on the Fly. We'll be back as soon as we can. Wishing everyone health, love, and all the support you need during these times.

With Love, The Arts on the Fly Festival Society

Arts on the Fly is proudly supported by the Cariboo Regional District and the City of Williams Lake via the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society.

New Improved Camping

For 2019 we were very excited to introduce new and improved camping, and the reviews are in: it is great. From here on out, RV and overnight car parking will be in the spawning channel fields, behind the river campground. RVs can rest comfortably in the dappled sunlight of the cottonwood trees, accessible by the first turnoff on the right hand side after the river campground road. Follow the signs and our parking attendants will help you find a spot. The river campground will be used exclusively for tent camping. This will minimize the effects of car traffic in the river zone, and ultimately give everybody a better chance to lock down a primo camp spot. Thanks so much to the Horsefly River Roundtable, DFO, and Interior Roads for helping us ensure that there's room for everyone and that the incredible ecosystems around the Horsefly River are well respected and loved. This is a very special place and we all need to take care of it! Both the river tent campground and the spawning channel RV campground will have dedicated "quiet" and "night owl" sections, to further ensure that all are comfortable.

Where's Horsefly?
