Prince George Regional Heritage Fair

May 18, 2023

Heritage Fair is an annual showcase of history projects created by local students.

The Heritage Fairs program is a bilingual educational initiative encouraging students to explore an aspect of Canadian heritage. The Regional Heritage Fair is scheduled to be held on May 18, 2023. It actively involves young people in grades 4 and up, schools, businesses, and community groups in a celebration of our shared traditions and heritage.

Heritage Fair begins in the classroom as a hands-on individual or group project in which students are encouraged to research a topic of strong personal interest. Students are encouraged to research any aspect of Canadian history and present the results of their efforts in the public forum of the Regional Heritage Fair, taking on the role of researcher, historian, interpreter, interviewer, storyteller, TV producer, drama producer, or artist. Often the research involves heroes or ‘personages’ of interest; others find fascination in the lives or events of their own families.

Students from across the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George are selected to share their outstanding project displays at the Regional Heritage Fair. Students come together to share their projects, take part in a field trip, and enjoy heritage activities organized for the event. Judging takes place based on established criteria and involves an interview in which the student has the opportunity to discuss their project and the process involved in the research. Recognition by local dignitaries makes the event particularly special for all participants.

Winners of the Regional Heritage Fair are then selected to go on to the Provincial Heritage Fair.

Registration opens on December 1, 2022.
