Welcome to River Boat Days

Schedule of events
RIVERBOAT DAYS 2018: Friday, August 3 to Sunday, August 12

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 2017 program delivered more than 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. And the performance of the Saturday evening headliner, Canadian Independent Music Awards Hall of Fame inductees 54-40 was a must attend event at Riverboat Days 2017.

Riverboat Days prides itself on being a "family-friendly" celebration. Thanks to hard working volunteers and business sponsorship most Riverboat Days events are free of charge or come with very modest registration fees. Affordability plus the variety and quality of events make Terrace the place to be in early August.

Riverboat Days is an entire week to share the history, the culture and simply the unequalled natural setting around Terrace. So for 2018 encourage that child to attend a crafts workshop at Heritage Park, sample delicious fare at the Kitsumkalum Salmon Barbecue , watch an outdoor movie at George Little Park, enter a team in the Riverboat Day's Soccer Tournament or try a new activity like archery or dragonboating. From quiet and reflective art exhibits to loud and fast auto racing, that's Riverboat Days.

The 2017 Events Schedule can still be viewed by clicking the button on the right. Registration Forms for 2018 Events, for Vendors in George Little Park and for the Legion Riverboat Days Parade should be posted on this website starting around March. Also under "Registration Forms" in the left hand column 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 (2017 editions). If you are interested in event sponsorship, we can provide a 2017 Attendance Estimate Report completed with the assistance of the Terrace Volunteer Bureau.

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.
