City of Terrace
The final preparation plans are in the works for the 2nd annual outdoor winter festival and market called the Skeena Christmas Festival.
The City is coordinating the planning, but the effort is being shared by numerous individuals and groups including the Greater Terrace Beautification Society and the Skeena Valley Farmer’s Market.
The idea was proposed by a local individual, Alex Pietrella, who moved here recently from Germany where winter markets are a big part of the holiday season.
The goals of the festival are to get people out to enjoy the beautiful winter days and support local producers, artisans and musicians – Shop local!
