RiverFest 2020 | Kids Out and About Vancouver

RiverFest 2020

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sun, 09/27/2020
We’re excited to announce the return of RiverFest for its 18th year! Presented by the Port of Vancouver, RiverFest is a FREE family-friendly festival taking place on the 26th and 27th of September, and a great way to celebrate the arrival of fall along the Fraser River! RiverFest 2020 will feel a little different from previous years, but rest assured that the FRDC team is committed to providing you with activities, digital performances, and educational workshops while taking every available step to ensure your health and safety during your visit!

This year’s event will be divided into two days of activities on the last weekend of September:

Family Fun Zone

On Saturday, September 26th, join us inside the Centre from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm for the return of our Family Fun Zone! A number of engaging art, craft and activity stations will be placed throughout both floors of the FRDC for you to enjoy. Try your hand at creating your very own wax paper watershed, search for hidden artifacts using homemade water-scopes, and learn fascinating trivia about some of the shorebirds that call the Fraser Estuary home!

  • DATE: Saturday, September 26th
  • TIME: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
  • Strict safety protocols will be in place all day, including limited numbers of guests, one-hour sessions, social distancing within the Centre and sanitation between sessions. Pre-registration is therefore required, and visitors can book one-hour time-slots to visit the Centre. Register your visit HERE.

Throughout the day, be sure to check in with us online, as we will be presenting guest speakers and performers such as the musical duo Bobs & LoLo, and Haida Storyteller Kung Jaadee!

Tune in on the 26th to find the online speakers and performers here:
