The 2020 Salty Dog weekend will be rescheduled into 2021 in an effort to support flattening the curve and reduce the spread of COVID-19. Please understand this decision did not come easily. Salty Dog was to celebrate its 20th Anniversary next month. For 19 years, community near & far has come together to ride, high five, create lasting friendships and enjoy all that is Shuswap. We know this will continue in 2021.
