Here in the Peace Country, people work hard. And as we all know, people who work hard PLAY HARD. There are some upcoming events that are going to be crazy fun! Check them out!



Dawson Creek’s Encana Events Centre is one of the premier venues of the Peace Country, and it attracts world-class performers for some of the best concerts you’ll ever see. On March 30, 101.5 THE BEAR are bringing SHINEDOWN to Peace Country to disturb The Peace with their hardcore alt-rock sound.

Formed in Jacksonville, Florida, Shinedown have had the third most singles on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts, behind only Van Halen and Three Days Grace – that means they’re among the best of the best. They’ll blow the roof of Encana with hit songs like “Devour,” “I Dare You” and “If You Only Knew.”

Supporting Shinedown will be LA freak metal band In This Moment, who perform in movie monster make-up with sexy back-up dancers showing you how to rock along, as well as Saskatoon rockers One Bad Son and Tennessee alt-rockers 10 Years. Altogether, it’s going to be completely unforgettable. Tickets here.



Fort St. John’s Lido bar is an awesome venue with a storied history. On Friday, April 13 come sees The Johnny McCuaig Band as they rock out… with bagpipes! Playing traditional rock and roll with a distinctly Scottish twist, these celtic rockers always kick off a fantastic time. Opening for Johnny McCuaig will be local rockers Roadworn. It’s going to a great time! Find out more here.

Whether you’re working or playing in Peace Country, you’ll find a hotel you can trust in all these Northern communities:  Grimshaw, Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, Chetwynd, and Vegreville. If you’re heading to Northern Alberta or British Columbia, Pomeroy is a name you can trust. Book your stay today!

The best place to stay in Fort St. John

Fort St. John is many things: a place to work, and a place to play; a community, and a staging grounds for further northern adventures; a small town and a northern paradise. Whatever brings you here, you’ll receive a warm welcome to fight the cold outside.


Fort St. John plays host to the Canadian Junior Long Track Championships 2018, where the nation’s top speed skaters will compete for the gold! Track skating is one of the most incredible shows of skill and athleticism in the world, and this is your chance to see the best of the best putting it all on the line. With multiple age categories, this is where the next generation of Olympic athletes will prove themselves!
