They can also visit Festival venues in the downtown core and take in an art walk with visual artists working on location, learn about the rich history and heritage of Grand Forks and the Boundary, and enjoy the many recreational and leisure opportunities that the Sunshine Valley offers.

      Reserved camping without hook-up will be available near the Community Centre and within walking distance of the Kettle River, or at other campgrounds in the area. Participants can also stay at one of several motels and hotels in and around Grand Forks, and take advantage of the many restaurants, shops, tourist attractions, and other services the city offers.
