Year Of The Bear 2024
"Where Friends Become Family"

Friendzy Fest Year Four is confirmed! After last year’s incredible return to RangetonPark, we’re already on our way to make the 4th annual Friendzy Fest the biggest and best it’s ever been.

Friendzy Fest: Year Of The Bear will take place Friday, August 8th – Sunday, August 11th at Rangeton Park in Evansburg, AB. What started as a group of 50 friends that wanted to get away from reality has now turned into a sensation amongst artists and fans all over western Canada, celebrating three days of music, camping, art, and mindful, holistic workshops “Where Friends Become Family.”

Hosted during the peak of summertime on the beautiful Pembina River, Friendzy Fest combines all the finer things in life: camping along a river, three stages boasting 100,000 watts of bass showcasing western Canada’s diverse music scene, top tier visual light and laser show, themed days, food trucks, and more.
