Celebrating BC and World Rivers Day

BC Rivers Day is a province-wide event, which gives the public an opportunity to celebrate this province's spectacular river heritage, from city streams to wilderness whitewater. Held every year on the last weekend in September, events throughout the province attract over 75,000 people in more than 100 communities. The success of this event has recently led to the establishment of World Rivers Day, which coincides with BC Rivers Day and takes place in a number of different countries.

On the last weekend in September we will celebrate BC and World Rivers Day with a festival that honours the Fraser River. Inspired by the river, RiverFest is a free family-friendly festival that consists of art exhibits, interactive activities from conservation organizations, live music, and the famous Lucille Johnstone Workboat Parade.

Plans are in the works for this year’s event, so check back often for up-to-date information. Or visit our RiverFest NewWest Facebook page and LIKE us. While you are there, tell us what you love about the Fraser River!
