Whether you enjoy the fresh air freedom on a quad or snowmobile, the quiet beauty while you cross country ski or canoe on the lake, “roughing it” while you camp, hike, hunt and fish, just enjoy relaxing on the beach or walking/biking/horseback riding along the Trans Canada Trail, this community is perfect for you to enjoy.
The population of the small community of Tulameen grows by thousands over the Tulameen Family Fun Days every August long weekend. The approximate 250 residents join forces to put on a terrific weekend of family fun including: a parade, baseball tournament, tons of game fun for the kids and adults as well as street vendor shopping adding to the summertime enjoyment.
