Monday, July 1 - 10:30am to 4:00pm

Dominion Day

Take a trip back in time and join us in celebrating July 1st the old-fashioned way!

Embrace the charm of the past with heritage demonstrations, live music, and other timeless activities. Experience how Prince George would have celebrated in the past by taking part in races and contests for all ages. 

Our old-fashioned Dominion Day celebrations kick off with a pancake breakfast that runs from 10:00 to 12:00! If you're an animal lover, you'll definitely want to come out early from 11:00 to 1:00 to visit with the cute farm critters from the PG Mobile Petting Zoo!


Join in heritage demonstrations such as ice cream making with our staff, and learn about making pickles from Shannon! If you've ever wanted to learn more about cheesemaking, be sure to chat with Tracey Johnson of as she makes cheese in the great outdoors! Afterwards, watch Dave Godber of SilverTree Woodworking demonstrate the pole lathe, or visit Dawson in the blacksmith shop!

You can bring a picnic to enjoy beside the scenic Fraser River, or get a hot dog or hamburger lunch from the barbeque - then kick back and relax to the musical stylings of Britt AM in the fresh air.

Learn the history of the site by taking a self-led tour, or join in a guided tour with a knowledgeable staff member to learn the history of the historic site. Pick up your "passport" and explore the historic site to "visit" all the provinces and territories, or get your treasure hunt and seek the clues for your prize!

Celebrate Dominion Day with the entire family with complimentary birthday cake to mark Canada’s 157th birthday at three different times points throughout the day - if you miss one cutting, there'll be another one! Finish off the day by playing some old-fashioned games or by making a festive craft in the Welcome Barn. Don't forget the General Store is open for sweet treats and locally made items, with wood items on sale all weekend long!
