Sandpoint’s summer music scene continues on with the 4th annual Trout and About Festival – an afternoon of music for kids and adults who still like to act like kids. The Festival will feature music from Missoula band The Whizpops. There will also be trout-related games, education, raffles, and giveaways.

To get the party started, the Whizpops will bring their multi-genre, science-based, educational songs to entertain, teach, and groove all ages. The band will be playing “The Bull Trout Song,” written just for this event to help launch the new “Take No Bull – Protect Bull Trout” program.

In May 2016, The Whizpops worked with the National Wildlife Federation to put together a new album “Ranger Rick’s Trail Mix Vol. 1.” The song “The Stream I Call Home: the bull trout song” is included on the album.

The event is sponsored by Avista, Panhandle Chapter Trout Unlimited, Idaho Fish & Game, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks as part of their collaborative efforts to educate about the threatened Bull Trout species and to promote clean and clear water in our rivers and lakes.

The fun begins when doors open at 11:00 Sunday, August 27th, at the 503 Oak Street in Sandpoint, i.e., Evans Brothers Coffee or “The Granary.". Music starts at 12:00. Cost is $3 for adults, and all kids are FREE (all minors must be accompanied by an adult). This is a rain or shine event with limited seating, guests are encouraged to bring their own camp chairs.

Bring the your kids to the dance party!
