Wings Over the Rockies Festival
May 6-12, Columbia Valley
Every year, the Wings Over the Rockies Festival is celebrated in the Upper Columbia Valley in early May. The 2019 event is planned around the theme: “Go ahead… Explore!” and offers over 100 events to choose from. The keynote speaker is Laval St. Germain, the only Canadian to have climbed Mount Everest without the use of supplemental oxygen, the only person to have climbed and skied Iraq’s highest peak, and the holder of the fastest ever crossing of the North Atlantic Ocean by solo ocean row boat from mainland North America to mainland Europe. Registration starts on Monday, April 8 at 9 a.m.
