2017 Intro: Summer is here and the countdown is underway for Riverboat Days 2017! Starting the August long weekend, Riverboat Days is the largest community festival in northwest British Columbia, highlighting the culture and heritage of the area. The longstanding crowd-gatherers of 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 for the summer Saturday evening headliner, we are thrilled to announce Canadian Independent Music Awards Hall of Fame inductees 54-40! From east Vancouver to a world stage, this will be a must attend event at Riverboat Days.

The 2017 program offers more than 50 events over 10 days. As always there will be huge variety, from interpretive walks, to sports tournaments, to live music. As if the jaw-dropping Freestyle Motocross Madness couldn’t get any bigger, it is. Fans witness amazing aerial acrobatics on motorcycles outside the Skeena Mall; then they add in a snowmobile! Mid-week, Riverboat Days will screen a family friendly movie "Boss Baby" outdoors at George Little Park. And music will fill the Valley with three days of the Skeena Valley Country Music Festival.

Riverboat Days is an entire week to share the history, the culture and simply the unequalled natural setting around Terrace. So for 2017 encourage that child to attend a Tshimshian language workshop at Heritage Park, sample delicious fare at the Kitsumkalum Salmon Barbecue tour, 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.
