Northern British Columbia's festivals and events showcase the region's culture and heritage, and range from small community celebrations to large, multi-day exhibitions.
Summer is a busy time for festival-goers with the Prince George Exhibition and Bulkley Valley Exhibition (in Smithers). Terrace is home to the Riverboat Days, which has parades, music and sporting events. For a unique event experience, check out the three-day Chetwynd International Chainsaw Carving Championships.
In winter, Fort St. John welcomes snow and chilly temperatures at the High On Ice Festival, while Prince George visitors and residents warm things up by dancing to live music at the Coldsnap Winter Music Festival.
