July 1 promises to be a lively and colourful affair in Fort St. James when activities and festivities come to life at the national historic site.

Fort St. James National Historic Site offers up day one of its new Daily Adventures and Tasty Experiences programs. Whether it’s learning the ancient techniques of a master hunter, spinning wool for an important project or taking in an interpretive talk about beaver pelts and their use, something for everyone is truly available at Fort St. James this year.

The Prince George Railway and Forestry Museum, an important partner in the Golden Raven program, will be bringing its exciting mini-rail train to Fort St. James for this special day. Khas T’an Outdoor Adventures, a local Fort St. James company renowned for it’s quality horsemanship lessons, will also take to the fields and offer horseback rides for kids of all ages. This, plus the pomp of raising the Maple Leaf over the tallest flagpole around, will all help to create a magical day for visitors.


Parks Canada offers free admission to all national historic sites and parks across Canada on this day. There are also a great number of free activities, including a community festival, food, entertainment and a parade in the town of Fort St. James itself. For locals from near or far, or visitors of any nationality, a small town Canada/Dominion Day is an opportunity not to be missed!
