 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 Festival is part artisan market, part community group gathering, part fly fishing celebration all rolled together with an environmental stewardship angle. The main stage 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

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 12:30pm (sign up at the festival). Suggested donation for these tours is $5 per person.
