BC Rivers Day Music Festival

“BC Rivers Day is a province-wide event, held every year on the last Sunday in September (Sept 23rd for 2012 in Prince George). Established in 1980 and coordinated by the Outdoor Recreation Council (ORC), it has been proclaimed by communities across BC and attracts over 75,000 people to more than 100 events each year.

The success of this event in BC has also recently led to the establishment of a “National Rivers Day” – and as part of the UN Water for Life Decade starting in 2005, a new “World Rivers Day” will be celebrated each September. This will use BC Rivers Day as a model and concurrent river-related events will take place in a number of different countries.”
