Welcome to River Boat Days

Schedule of events
RIVERBOAT DAYS 2019: Friday, August 2 to Sunday, August 11

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 2018 program offers more than 70 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 day ends with the performance of the Saturday evening headliner; this year it is 5 time Juno nominated Platinum Blonde!.

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, 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.

If you are interested in event sponsorship, a good place to start is by reading our 2018 Sponsorship Information Sheet on the About Us page. That's also where one can find a set of Audience Estimates and Quick Facts from last year, completed with the assistance of the Terrace Volunteer Bureau. Still got questions?: info@riverboatdays.ca
