Welcome to River Boat Days


Platinum Blonde to headline Concerts on the Park 2018! The Toronto band that was at the forefront of the New Wave of the early 1980s, is still producing fresh material and performing live at the best venues across the country. 5 times Juno nominated and selling multi-platinum records, can there be a better headliner for Concerts in the Park 2018?! "Crying over You" and "Doesn't Really Matter" are just 2 of the hits of an impressive repertoire that is coming to Terrace. It's live, it's outdoors and thanks to sponsorship, it's free of charge. Platinum Blonde will take the stage at George Little Park around 7:00 pm, Saturday evening, August 4. The Platinum Blonde trio are Mark Holmes (vocals, guitar), Sergio Galli (guitar) and Dan Todd (drums). More at www.platinumblondeworld.ca

Due to predicted low numbers of returning salmon to the Skeena River watershed this year, the Kitsumkalum Events Committee has cancelled the Kitsumkalum Salmon Barbecue. One of Riverboat Days most popular events, the BBQ has a thirty year history within Riverboat Days. The media release may be viewed by selecting the image on the left.

It's the combination of volunteer time and financial support of non-profit groups, small and large business that produces a community festival of over 50 events. Most of the sponsorship is received directly by the event organizers but the Riverboat Days Society also receives financial support. These funds are typically used for initiating new events, improving existing events and multimedia advertising of Riverboat Days. The main funding source for the Society is an annual grant from the City of Terrace and Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine. Local media also play a huge role in the success of Riverboat Days, providing services well beyond those for which they are contracted. Riverboat Days was one of the first recipients of support under the Fabulous Festivals and Events Program of the Northern Development Initiative Trust. But then we truly feel Riverboat Days is the epitome of a fabulous festival!
