February 2020 event blog

The deep freeze of January is over but winter isn’t quite done yet with a large amount of snow in the forecast for February. Luckily, there are plenty of indoor and outdoor events to get you through February and into the hopefully warmer days of March. Here’s our monthly event wrap up for February we put together in partnership with Tourism Prince George.

Celebrate cultural diversity with the FrancoFUN Winter Festival

The 35th Winter Festival – FrancoFUN hosted Les Cercle des Canadiens Francais is underway in Prince George. The festival kicked off with a Coldsnap Winter Music Festival concert, but if you missed the show, not to worry. There’s still plenty of fun to be had, including a senior’s lunch, a movie night, and a Sugar Shack including a brunch, silent auction and music.
