SEPT 23: MAIN FESTIVAL

The wait is over. RiverFest is back for its 15th year!

RiverFest 2017 will build on the success of past editions, while shining a light on the Fraser as a Working River, as we celebrate the opening of our brand new, state-of-the-art exhibition. RiverFest 2017 will also celebrate the Fraser’s contributions to our country by joining communities coast to coast in commemoration of Canada 150.

This year’s edition will be headlined by a Juno award-winning, nationally-recognized, musical duo… Bobs and LoLo!

As always, RiverFest’s Exhibitor Expo is back with organizations showcasing the environmental and cultural significance of the Fraser, its communities, other bodies of water, as well as BC nature and wildlife. RiverFest Artisan Market will also return this year, with a special emphasis on the River, its communities and its peoples.

Once again, our Family Fun Zone – loaded with crafts, games and interactive activities, is sure to be a hit with children and families of all ages. Pan for gold with Yukon Dan, learn to drum with Rhythm Resources and take in a performance with Vancouver Puppet Theatre, before jamming out with Bobs and LoLo.

Of course, RiverFest would not be complete without the Lucille Johnston Workboat Parade! Come down and watch tugboats zip across the water in style.

Feeling hungry? Not a worry! RiverFest 2017 will have many dining options, including food trucks and some of Vancouver’s top restaurants, just steps away in the River Market.
