Welcome to River Boat Days

Schedule of events
RIVERBOAT DAYS 2014: Friday, August 1 to Sunday, August 10

The countdown is on for Riverboat Days 2014! 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-pleasers of the Legion Parade, the Fireworks over Ferry Island, Beach Blast Volleyball, and Concerts in the Park never fail to please.

Concerts features two full days of the best music from around the northwest, held outdoors in the centrepiece of Riverboat Days, George Little Park. The Saturday line-up will be chosen by listeners of CFNR through the Rock the Stage contest. And what a treat for a Saturday evening headliner: Rock of Ages brings 3 top-notch tribute bands covering the music of Heart, Led Zeppelin and ZZ Top! The Sunday program closes with renowned folk singer/songwriter Mark Perry!

Every year a sprinkling of new events adds more vitality to Riverboat Days. This year the “4600 Block” will be abuzz with music, art and activities in the first ever Street Medley. Why not send the kids off to Speed Control's "Rock & Roll" Camp? Or try the Terrace Mountain Orientation Hike, celebrate the 100th anniversary of Kitsumgallum School or enter the Charity Poker Tournament. And long-term fans of Riverboat Days will savour the return of the Kitsumkalum Salmon Barbecue. But the ultimate adrenaline rush will be flying high above the Skeena Mall—the aerial acrobatics of FMZ Motocross Madness!!

Riverboat Days is an entire week to share the history, the culture and simply the unequalled natural setting around Terrace. So for 2014 encourage that child to join a crafts workshop at Heritage Park, sample delicious fare in the "Tastes of Terrace" tour, enter a team in the Men’s Soccer Tournament or join a walking tour of the downtown and learn some surprising stories about the area's history. From quiet and reflective art exhibits to loud and fast auto racing, that's Riverboat Days.
