SpringFest, held at the East Coulee Community Hall and Museum, is the longest running festival in the Badlands. It goes from noon to midnight, and features a line up of talented musical artists who have all donated their time and music to the event.

Transportation to the festival will be provided between Drumheller and East Coulee on Saturday. Advance tickets, on sale until Friday, are $25 for adults, $22.50 for students/seniors, $20 for teens (kids are free) online from ecsmuseum.ca Ticket prices jump by $5 at the door.

On Friday night, a “blast-off” party will be held at the East Coulee Motel and Tavern. Starting from 6 p.m., it includes a live CKUA broadcast, as well as performances by the Kirby Sewell Band and The Sadlier-Brown Band.
