Heritage Week is an annual event that takes place during the third full week in February. It celebrates and showcases local heritage across the province.
Every year, Heritage BC launches Heritage Week by choosing a theme and sending official posters to libraries, schools, municipal offices and politicians across the province. We support and promote organizations who host local heritage events for their communities, and encourage municipalities to issue proclamations formalizing the week.
If you or your organization wants to participate in Heritage Week but aren’t sure how, please reach out to us. We encourage everyone in the heritage sector to participate in Heritage Week in some way.
Heritage Week 2024 will be taking place on February 19-25, 2024. This year’s Heritage Week theme will be announced on October 25th.
