While a good majority of Canadian communities take advantage of the July Canada Day long weekend to throw a great “pioneer days” shingdig, Terrace’s weekend to shine is the BC Day long weekend & following week at the start of August.

Pancake breakfast, parade down mainstreet, salmon BBQ, Slingers’ race, fireworks, concerts in the park, Bluegrass festival, Ferry Island treasure hunt, volleyball, basketball – just to name a small fraction of the events that occur.

For more information on the celebration, photos from past events & upcoming plans, visit the Riverboat Days website.


Yearly, regional music and performing arts students come together to share their talents and skills with the community through performance and friendly competition. Competitors often go on to compete at the BC provincial level.

Running about two weeks, this festival occurs towards the last week of March / first week of April. The festival celebrates it’s 46th anniversary in 2011.

Please visit their website for more information on the upcoming festival dates.

Skills competition, great prizes, dinner Saturday night for curlers, and great music & dancing.
