BREAKING: Shambhala issues “pre-evacuation alert” as nearby wildfire continues to grow

An evacuation alert has been issued at href="">Shambhala Music Festival, today August 12, due to rising concern of the McCormick Creek wildfire and its jumping of the Salmo River.

While this evacuation order area does NOT yet currently include Shambhala Music Festival and mandate for its attendees to leave the premises, the McCormick Creek Fire Evacuation Alert area has been expanded to include the Salmo River Ranch as advised by BC Wildfire.

At this time the evacuation alert is merely a notification of risk in the area and not yet an order. Attendees should be aware of the rising concern, remain in communication, and stay informed as an evacuation order from the area may follow an alert, although often times an area may remain on alert for an extended period of time.
