Dear Classic Rock Fans,
We sure hope that over the past year you and your loved ones have been able to stay healthy and safe despite the ongoing pandemic that we’ve all been facing. Our entire team has been thinking of you, and now we want to take a minute to talk about Cariboo Rocks the North 2021.
Over the past year, and especially in the past couple of weeks, we have had the opportunity to thoroughly take our time and imagine each and every possible scenario of how to run our event safely and within the current and possible restrictions, but also in a way that preserves the event’s viability for years to come. Unfortunately, with the current restrictions, and the lack of certainty about the parameters surrounding the future restrictions from both the Government of British Columbia and the Government of Canada, we don’t see how moving forward will be possible in 2021. Although we are extremely excited that it appears there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel with the rollout of vaccinations and further steps towards ‘normal’, the reality we are currently facing is that there has been very little certainty about what the next steps will in fact look like, and what it means for the, inevitably gradual, return of live events and public gatherings.
This means that although we are optimistic and excited by the gradual lifting of restrictions, the uncertainty we face regarding those eased restrictions does not provide a solid enough foundation to proceed with 2021. Therefore, after weighing all of the options we are officially announcing the cancellation of the 2021 edition of Cariboo Rocks the North. Yes, we’re sad too – but we know this will give us a chance to reset and come back with our biggest and most badass year yet with an all-new lineup for August 5-7, 2022!
As always – our commitment of providing a weekend full of fantastic classic rock music will not waver. Our Team is dedicated to bringing you a spectacular event in 2022 with the new lineup being announced this Fall!

Our love of music is what brings us together, and although this additional speedbump isn’t what we wanted, it will allow us to celebrate even more when we come together in 2022. Cariboo Rocks the North is as great as it is because of YOU, our fans! We are thankful for your support and dedication, and we are certain that 2022 will be our biggest and best year yet. It’s going to be one heck of a party – we can’t wait to see you!
Until then – be safe & rock on!
