Fall Festival at Haig-Brown House

 

 

 Fall Festival at Haig-Brown House

Sunday, September 25 - Rivers Day

Noon to 4:00pm

Haig-Brown House, 2250 Campbell River Road, Campbell River

Admission is Free

 

 Fall Festival at Haig-Brown House is a place to celebrate what we produce, prepare and distribute locally.

Conservation and paying homage to World Rivers Day is a big part of the festival and is how we honor the legacies of Roderick and Ann Haig-Brown and their work on education, conservation and preserving our natural environment.  The festival will feature fly tying and casting demos with opportunities for spectators to ask questions from local experts. 

New this year is a broader focus on food and goods locally produced, processed and distributed. Participants will walk away learning something, sharing their own experiences and seeing how Campbell River is evolving, growing and changing. You’ll see demos on how to preserve fruit from backyard fruit trees, what grows best in this climate, how to grow organically, how honey is made and much more.

There will be lots of entertainment on site with live music from local folk bands, readings from some of Roderick Haig-Brown’s notable works, Crow Theatre will make an appearance, and you can try your hand at croquet. Bring the whole family!
