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 Friday, September 27 and Saturday, September 28, 2013 we will celebrate BC and World Rivers Day with a festival that honours the Fraser River, the province’s most magnificent river. Inspired by the river, RiverFest will be presented free to the public and will consist of art exhibits, interactive activities from conservation organizations and community groups that build upon the river and environmental themes. Live music and entertainment will complete the weekend offerings for an exciting, family-friendly festival atmosphere.
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.
