Celebrate B.C.’s Distinctive Destinations this Heritage Week!

British Columbia’s history will come alive as the province celebrates Heritage Week, February 15-21. The theme for the 2016 Heritage Week is Distinctive Destinations: Experience Historic Places.

Every year, we designate one week in February to celebrate British Columbia’s distinguishing heritage. The 2016 Heritage week kicks off this year with the National Heritage Day, and Flag Day, on February 15.

Heritage Week is a great opportunity for you to get out and explore the historic tourist attractions that help to make British Columbia the unique and distinctive tourist destination it is! From the Haida village of Skidegate to the Gold Rush town of Barkerville, there are heritage locations in abundance, many of which will be celebrating the week with a series of special events.

“Heritage Week is a real celebration of British Columbia’s rich and varied history,” said Kathryn Molloy, Executive Director, Heritage BC. “Heritage attractions, societies, and local governments will all be pulling out the stops to welcome the public at events at their own distinctive destinations

“This year, Heritage BC will add to the celebrations with the 35th Annual Heritage BC Awards Gala honoring the outstanding achievements of B.C.’s heritage conservation heroes taking place during Heritage Week “.

The Awards Gala takes place at The Imperial in downtown Vancouver on February 18. Tickets are still available.

Come and enjoy drinks, appetizers and networking with B.C.’s heritage advocates, organizations, groups, businesses and government officials as Heritage BC Awards winners are announced. Tickets are available on the Heritage BC website.
