 Fall Festival at Haig-Brown House

Sunday, September 23, 2018 - Rivers Day

11am to 3pm

Haig-Brown House, 2250 Campbell River Road, Campbell River

Admission is Free

 

The Fall Festival at Haig-Brown House is part artisan market, part community group gathering, part fly fishing celebration all rolled together with an environmental stewardship angle. The mainstage will see the City hosting its annual Stewardship Awards as well as the cool sounds of local singer/songwriter Doug Folkins. Come with an appetite and sample the BBQ and some sweet and savoury treats at some of the market vendors. There are games and activities for families to do at the festival with lots to see and explore. It’s more than just a place to see… attendees will learn and experience as well.

 

New this year is the introduction of a Festival Lounge where Beach Fire Brewery will be serving up one of their special batches. Visitors will also be able to take a guided tour of Haig-Brown House lead by one of the knowledgeable museum interpreters. Reserve a spot on event day with reservations between 11:00am and 1:00pm. Suggested donation for these tours is $5 per person.

 

In the Study of the House will be two presentations, both showcasing the legacy and impact of Roderick Haig-Brown. The first will be readings from selected passages by Roderick Haig-Brown presented by David Brown, a life-long student and fan of Roderick’s work . Sit back and enjoy the informative talk by David and then hear some passages from Roderick’s many works. At 2:00pm, Eiko Jones will present “Salmon and the Underwater Perspective”, a photographic journey that explores the connections and balance between salmon and the local rivers and the importance of a vibrant and healthy watershed. Eiko will present this 25min talk twice, at 2:00pm and 2:30pm.  Space can be reserved for this talk in advance by calling the Museum at Campbell River at 250-287-3103, or as space allows on the day of the event.
