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 legacy of Roderick Haig-Brown and his 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. 


Hosted by the Museum at Campbell River, the festival is an initiative to bring community together, highlight what we do to support each other and strengthen our connection to the environment, and for attendees to walk away with some new knowledge, experiences and fun times. The idea is to not only be an invigorating market, but also an experience.


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, and you can try your hand at croquet. Bring the kids as there is lots for kids to do.
