Prince George Regional Heritage Fair

The 2024 Prince George Regional Heritage Fair is scheduled for Friday, May 10, 2024.

A group of BC Heritage Fair students stand in front of the Huble house.

What is a Heritage Fair?

Heritage Fairs are a celebration of Canada’s heritage in the form of student history projects that bring people together to make history come alive. The Heritage Fairs program is a bilingual educational initiative that encourages students to explore an aspect of Canadian heritage in a dynamic and captivating learning environment. Students are encouraged to research any aspect of Canadian history and present the results of their efforts in a public forum. The event is free and is open to students in Grades 4 to 10.

Goals of the program are to:

  • Create an environment where students are excited to learn and share

  • Celebrate cultural diversity and multiple perspectives

  • Reveal connections between the past and present

  • Provide recognition for student achievement

  • Inspire Canadians to celebrate their places in history

The Prince George Regional Heritage Fair has been held since the early 2000s and is organized by a committee consisting of representatives from Huble Homestead Historic Site, Central BC Railway & Forestry Museum, The Exploration Place, Prince George Public Library, and teachers from School District 57 and local independent schools. 

The Regional Fair is a day-long event held yearly in early May, featuring project judging by volunteer judges, cultural activities, a field trip, and an evening Community Showcase and awards ceremony. The Prince George Regional Heritage Fair is part of a provincial program sponsored by the BC Heritage Fairs Society.

 

The BC Provincial Heritage Fair is held each year in late June or early July. Between 3 and 5 delegates from each region of the province attend the five-day Fair.
