Be sure to include Revelstoke in your festival travel plans this summer as the Revelstoke Railway Museum presents its annual Railway Days festival from August 11 to 14. Packed with railway related events and activities, this festival has become a favourite of ‘railfans’ and general tourists alike as it offers something of interest for everyone and celebrates the region’s rich railway heritage.

Railway Days will feature special exhibits, events, and activities surrounding the railway heritage that is deeply rooted in this small mountain town. The Revelstoke Railway Museum, the Revelstoke Museum and Archives, Parks Canada, B.C Interior Forestry Museum, Three Valley Gap, the Nickelodeon Museum, and the local Revelstoke Arts Council will be hosting a variety of different events at various locations.

The Railway Museum will host its annual dinner and silent auction fundraiser with guest musician, Abe Zacharias, on August 12. This award-winning artist has been performing in the country/western circuit for more than 35 years, has appeared at the Grand Ole Opry, and has influenced other artists, including Alberta’s Paul Brandt. He also spent many years working for CP at watch points in Rogers Pass.

The weekend also includes a family day, a vintage car show, walking tours, storytelling, special music & presentations, a photo contest, model railroad demonstrations and much, much more! Be sure to ask about the Arrow Lakes Railway Trestle Tour.

The Revelstoke Railway Museum is dedicated to sharing the history of the construction and development of the Canadian Pacific Railway through the Columbia Mountains. The museum is proud to have a satellite location and gift shop at the location of the driving of the Last Spike, on the Trans-Canada Highway at Craigellachie, BC.
