How to enjoy the 2021 Kiwanis AleFest from home

Amy Dhanjal // Kiwanis Club Prince George Every January since 2015, Prince George locals have packed into Two Rivers Gallery in downtown PG to enjoy craft beer from across northern B.C.

2020 Downtown Fallfest – new ways and more days!

Colleen Van Mook // Downtown Prince George Fall is a time to celebrate the changing of the leaves and to embrace that slight chill in the air. Last year, we were so excited to see how Prince George folks filled our downtown streets on the wonderful Downtown Fallfest Saturday in September. Although the 2020 event will look different, we did not want to lose the opportunity to promote downtown and to give our community a chance to celebrate the autumn season. We have turned Downtown Fallfest into a month-long celebration and a way to support our great downtown businesses –

How Downtown Prince George re-imagined Downtown Summerfest

Alisha Rubadeau // Downtown Prince George On Sunday July 12 Downtown Prince George invites you to our re-imagined Downtown Summerfest! That seems like the easiest sentence to write, but it was no easy task getting to it. The idiom “we’re building the plane while flying it” has been our motto since February. The changes that we have seen this year have left many events in Prince George cancelled or postponed. When we had our first Downtown Summerfest Zoom meeting, the team at Downtown Prince George knew we wanted the event to go on – but none of us could imagine

Mr. PG colouring page created by artist Erin Stagg

Celebrate Mr. PG’s 60th birthday!

Kirstyn Wallace There’s no better symbol of Prince George’s community spirit than Mr. PG – so it’s only fitting that his birthday would become such a demonstration of that spirit in action. When the original plans for a birthday party at the site of Mr. PG were cancelled because of provincial health orders, various local organizations, artists, and entrepreneurs banded together to come up with new plans. The result is a variety of activities that can be enjoyed from home or by practicing physical distancing. The group of presenters now includes the Prince George Farmers Market Association and their food
