Welcome to Riverboat Days, the largest festival in Northwest British Columbia. In early August, for the past 30 years, the Terrace
Riverboat Days has grown as a community festival for the enjoyment of residents to today where visitors from villages and cities
throughout the Northwest come to enjoy the festivites.
Today's Riverboat Days is large; some 8-10,000 spectators cheered the Parade; 4-5,000 watched the spectacular Mountain Thunder Motorcross
riders; and 3,000 more enjoyed the Concerts in the Park. Today's Riverboat Days also features countless businesses and individuals that
enter the Parade, sponsor events, and/or volunteer their time.
Riverboat Days offers an occasion for communities in Northwest B.C. to come together, to visit friends, and for former residents to return
to Terrace. Terrace is a great small city, and we are very proud of our heritage. Riverboat Days was started as an historical event to
remember; this year's festival included a Pioneer Picnic at the Heritage Park Museum, a commemoration of the Pioneers (Kitsumgallum) Cemetary,
a historical Walking Tour (A Walk with the Founder), and the opening of an historical Riverboat Exhibit.
Terrace has a thriving arts and culture community, and this years Riverboat Days was extended to feature art, drama and music. A First
Nations carving exhibit featured artisans designing and carving beautiful artistic creations. Our painters and potters produced their very
distinctive works on Lakelse Avenue. A Writer's workshop provided expert instruction and highlightened the local published writers. A youth
drama camp entertained many budding-theatre performers of the future.
In 2005, our Riverboat Days Society is committed to larger, more diverse and even greater entertainment. Terrace opens our community to
visitors, and we welcome you to Terrace.
Be sure to mark your calendar Terrace Riverboat Days from July 29th to August 5th, 2005.
