Seafest is our largest festival and has been held annually since 1978 on the second weekend in June. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are packed with events, activities, food booths, and entertainment in Prince Rupert's downtown and on the waterfront. It is an exciting time in Prince Rupert during Seafest and we hope to see you there!
This two day event takes place annually on the first weekend of December. It kicks off with throngs of people coming out to participate in the Lighting of the Trees at the Court House on Friday evening. Local choirs, musicians and bands sing Christmas carols while everyone munches on cookies and candy canes, washed down with steaming hot chocolate, all supplied free by local sponsors.
Saturday is a special day for the children. With a traditional pancake breakfast and Santa Claus Parade there is lots of opportunity to meet with Santa. In the afternoon there is free swimming and skating.
Saturday evening brings the Sailpast where vessel operators decorate their boats with Christmas lights and themes. View the Sailpast from Mariners Park where you can sip on the free hot chocolate drinks.
Fireworks on the Harbour begin at 8pm, weather permitting, on the harbour.
