The Museum at Campbell River will host the annual Haig-Brown Festival on World River’s Day and celebrate the legacy of Roderick Haig-Brown and Ann (nee Elmore) Haig-Brown the influential couple who made their home in Campbell River. It is a unique opportunity to explore the environment and connect with nature, as well as a chance to appreciate the many local artists, connect with community groups, and enjoy some live music in a stunning setting.
Highlights of the festival this year include a writing workshop on inspiring creativity through mindfulness facilitated by Margo McLoughlin, an artisan market featuring new artists, the city-hosted Stewardship Awards, fly-casting and fly-tying demonstrations, a guided botanical walk with local plant expert Chuck De Sorcy, readings from the works of Roderick Haig-Brown with Neil Cameron, music by the Awakaneers, and a craft table for kids hosted by the Immigrant Welcome Centre.
“The Haig-Brown Festival isn’t just an artisan market – it’s an opportunity to learn about the environment and the importance of preserving its integrity and beauty,” says Ken Blackburn Museum Programs Manager. “It’s also an opportunity to connect with local social service agencies.”
