Welcome to River Boat Days

Schedule of events

July 12/21: Festivities are happening!! A relaxing of COVID health protection orders has inspired several event organizers to get busy arranging Riverboat Days type events for this July and August. With northwest musicians taking the stage, Concerts in the Park will return to George Little Park, Saturday, July 31. As other activities become known we will post on our Facebook and Instagram pages and provide a basic Schedule of Events on this website. No Parade. No Fireworks. No Riverboat Days 2021 as we had hoped. But still some summer fun is to come this year!!

Sept 22/20: Riverboat Days 2020 was cancelled but there are still opportunities to celebrate the heritage and culture of the Terrace area. For inspiration we offer some "2020 Fun Activities." These include a Word Puzzle, Photo Identification Quizzes and more. Click the link on the left. Celebrate the Spirit of the Skeena!
We're on Facebook!

July 22/21: "Coming Together" one-day event on Monday, August 2, 2021. The City of Terrace is assisting this event by closing Main Street for the Healing Walk and also the use of George Little Park. Since the pandemic, the devastating news of the finding of the 215 remains of children from the former Kamloops Residential School, and the recent loss of the village of Lytton, we need to come together in unity, thus our unspoken theme this year will be, "Reopen, Reconnect, Reunite, and stand Resilient."
This is a time of coming back together, to heal together. Lynn Parker and Lorna Brown will be hosting this year's 1st Annual "Coming Together" event on Monday, August 2, 2021, from 11:00am - 3:00pm at the George Little Park, Terrace, BC. We are inviting all to join us at the Healing Walk. Meet at City Hall at 11:00 am, we will walk down Main Street, turning on Kalum Street, and walking into George Little Park. **Wear your Orange T-shirts!!** At the park, we will start with a moment of silence, prayer, welcoming, acknowledgement speeches from dignitaries from surrounding areas.

Vendor registration forms for the "Coming Together" event can be found on the Registration Forms page.

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.

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
