(2019) 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! And this year, LNG Canada made a significant financial contribution to Riverboat Days 2019 and is our sponsor of the Great Big Tent that hovers over George Little Park.

Riverboat Days really does not begin till the Black Powder Cannon cracks its opening salvo at the Opening Ceremonies. For the cannon, we thank Ted Ramsey, Paul Harrison and friends from the Terrace Rod and Gun Club.
