Located on the U.S.- Canadian border, Sumas is a popular and busy crossing point between the two countries. The name Sumas means “land without trees” according to the Cowichan first nation inhabitants of British Columbia.

The town hosts a number of festivals each year. The signature event for the community is the Sumas Junior Rodeo that happens every July. Several hundred youths descend on the Rodeo Grounds to rope and ride in the fast-paced competition. Around the same time, grounds are bustling with the Bull-A-Rama, a competition featuring top amateur adult bull riders from the United States and Canada.

Sumas visitor amenities include lodging, shopping, dining, campgrounds and professional services.
