If you are planning to travel to western Canada, there are several events and activities that Ya'Gotta consider taking in!
During the last quarter century western Canada has become a hot-bed of roots based music and hosts a fabulous selection of folk music festivals (http://www.yagotta.ca/activities/folkfest.htm
). Many of these folk music festivals in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and the northern territories in western Canada (Yukon and the Northwest Territories), feature top industry performers, from around the world, as well as the amazing talent developed in our own country! To provide regional visitors with regional sounds and songwriting flair, many of these festivals also feature local favourites.
One of the best ways to experience the culture of the aboriginal first nations people, is to take in a Powwow. Click here (http://www.yagotta.ca/activities/powwow.htm
