Schedule of events
RIVERBOAT DAYS 2020: Friday, July 31 to Sunday, August 9



April 9/20: Covid-19 Update: As of this date planning for Riverboat Days 2020 is proceeding on its normal course. However, virus mitigation requirements such as physical distancing that may be in effect this summer may result in cancellation or substantial downsizing of this year's Riverboat Days. The Society is currently surveying its larger event organizers on their event plans and any contingencies in light of the coronavirus. The Terrace Riverboat Days Society has set June 4 as a target date to decide on whether or not Riverboat Days 2020 will proceed, or in what form.

Mar 27/20: Want to be part of the region's largest community festival? All are welcome to attend meetings of the Terrace Riverboat Days Society where one can find out how one can help. The next meeting is scheduled for 7:00 pm, Thursday, June 4. Contact us through our email: info@riverboatdays.ca to confirm meeting times, location or log-in details.

Starting the August long weekend, Riverboat Days is the largest community festival in northwest British Columbia, highlighting the culture and heritage of the area. Riverboat Days offers huge variety, from interpretive walks, to sports tournaments, to live music. The 2019 program offered nearly 50 events over 10 days. Longstanding crowd-gatherers such as the Legion Parade, the Fireworks over Ferry Island, Beach Blast Volleyball and Concerts in the Park never fail to please. Concerts features the best music from around the northwest, held outdoors in the centrepiece of Riverboat Days, George Little Park.

Riverboat Days is an entire week to share the history, the culture and simply the unequalled natural setting around Terrace. So for 2020 take a walking tour of the downtown organized by Heritage Park, watch an outdoor movie at George Little Park, enter a team in the Davis Cup Riverboat Days Soccer Tournament or take in a new activity like archery or drag racing. From quiet and reflective art exhibits to loud and fast auto racing, that's Riverboat Days.

Forms for 2020 will start appearing on this website around March 1. The 2019 Events Schedule can still be viewed by clicking the button on the right. Registration Forms for 2020 Events, for Vendors in George Little Park and, later, for the Legion Parade are posted under "Registration Forms" in the left hand column. Also on the "Registration Forms" page are other resources to help you plan your days, including an events' location map, daily event list and event list classified by target audience and themes. For now, the 2019 editions are posted.

At any time, we encourage you to discuss your ideas with members of the Society Executive for new events or suggestions to make Riverboat Days even better. The Executive is listed on the "About Us" page. If you don't know any of these people, you can get contact information through the George Little House or City of Terrace Recreation Department. We are always open to new members of the organizing committee. Still got questions?: info@riverboatdays.ca
