Direct flights are available into Fort St. John and Dawson Creek from Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton. Vehicle rentals are available from local airports; make sure to reserve in advance.
By road, there are multiple points of entry to Northeast BC. From Vancouver and the Okanagan, expect a two-day drive via Highway 1 and 97. Coming from Edmonton and Grande Prairie? Highway 43 is an easy one-day straight shot; from Calgary, Highways 2 and 22 will connect you to the main artery heading west in a longer but scenic route.
Highway 16 in Northern BC will connect you to Prince George, then onto Highway 97 north. Make sure you have all-season tires and check road conditions before you embark.
So, you’ve made it Fort St. John! Here’s what you need to know about getting to the show:
Swanson Lumber Road will be closed to general traffic – residents, buses and VIP traffic ONLY will be allowed on this road.
General traffic will access the airport via 100th Avenue, through the roundabout and along Airport Road. Baldonnel Road (255 Road) will also be accessible.
Parking at the airport will be CASH ONLY, in support of North Peace Search and Rescue. Please, be patient and follow the directions of the hard-working folks directing you to your parking spot.
