Pender Harbour Days is an annual celebration of our heritage featuring historical boats, land-based heritage displays, sailing competitions, and more combined with arts, music, kids' activities, and entertainment.

On Friday evening, watch the boat parade around Pender Harbour featuring classic boats as well as modern. (All boats are invited to join!)

Saturday is full of fun, free activities for the whole family including mini boatbuilding, heritage displays, music, community groups, vendors, a Search & Rescue demonstration, hard hat divers, and much more.

On Sunday is the popular Heritage Talk, including stories from locals ​and experts about Pender Harbour's history.  

We will also be raffling off a handmade cedar-strip canoe on Sunday afternoon!

This festival is a community-wide event supported by the Pender Harbour Living Heritage SocietyPender Harbour & District Chamber of Commerce, ​and RCM-SAR Station 61 Pender Harbour. 

Proceeds from raffles and draws at this year's event will go to RCM-SAR Station 61 Pender Harbour for boat and equipment upgrades.
