Starting the August long weekend, Riverboat Days is the largest community festival in northwest British Columbia, highlighting the culture and heritage of the area. Riverboat Days offers huge variety, from interpretive walks, to sports tournaments, to live music. The 2017 program delivered more than 50 events over 10 days. Longstanding crowd-gatherers such as the Legion Parade, the Fireworks over Ferry Island, Beach Blast Volleyball and Concerts in the Park never fail to please.

Many Canadian Francophone communities outside of Quebec also celebrate Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day.

The Pacific Northwest Music Festival has been a major annual event in Terrace for the last 52 years. It is a competitive festival affiliated with Music Fest Canada. The Festival society is a non-profit community based organization, and is non-political, non-sectarian, and non-religious. The society and festival are run entirely by volunteers. Although it is a competitive event, the main focus of the festival is as a learning and growth experience for the participants, rather than a formal competition. To assist in this highly qualified individuals are brought in as adjudicators for each discipline. They critique and evaluate each individual performance and provide guidance on improvement, in addition to scoring for the competition side.
The Terrace & District Arts Council is pleased to present the Annual Summer Arts Festival during Riverboat Days from August 7 - 10. The festival boasts 12 local artist-led workshops at the Terrace Art Gallery, Heritage Park Museum and The Painted Squirrel Art Studio. The festival will also include a Lunch & Learn Lecture Series with local experts discussing a diverse range of topics. Lunch included!
All events are free to the public with advanced registration.
