On July 7th, Britannia Mine Museum will be hosting the annual Heritage Fair - a nation-wide event where students research and explore Canadian heritage and present their projects in a public exhibition. From music to media, Canadian youth use the medium of their choice to tell stories about Canadian heroes, contributions, sacrifices and tragedies.
50 students will be displaying their winning work in our Machine Shop on July 7th from 12pm to 3pm.
BC Heritage Fairs is a province-wide program that encourages youth to see history around them. Heritage fairs have been held in our province for over 20 years, and today 14 communities proudly host 4,000 participating students and over 700 volunteers each spring. Some of those students are selected to attend the annual Provincial Heritage Fair, a five-day history camp hosted in different parts of the province in July each year.
