The upper reaches of the Fraser River, the longest river running entirely within British Columbia, are the setting for upcoming events of the 2017 Fraser Heritage Festival.
Come and enjoy river rafting by Mount Robson September 29 (limited spaces), a free alphorn concert beside breathtaking Kinney Lake at the foot of Mount Robson (3 pm September 30), and a string ensemble in McBride (5 pm October 1).
Drama and musical theatre are in the works (7:30 pm on 13, 18, 19, 21, 22 October, $20) with Hunter of Peace, another in a series of inspired productions by Wishbone Theatre. Click this link to our calendars to see the latest information on these events and more.
Celebrating the geography, people and history of the upper Fraser River, the Heritage Festival is organized by the Robson Valley Arts and Culture Council.
Fall in the Robson Valley is shaping up to be a particularly colourful one. While we do not have the red trees of eastern Canada, the bright yellow aspens and birches and red shrubs are a very scenic backdrop to our hiking trails, great subjects for art and photography, and well worth a look, even if you are not able to visit on a day of scheduled events.
