Spring has sprung in the city of Prince George. 

With the lack of snow, extra sun, and warm weather, it gives you the perfect chance to take in some great events! We’ve highlighted six events taking place in April.

From March 28 to April 17 you can check out Meet My Sister! at Theatre NorthWest. This is the final production of the 2018-19 season and this World Premiere promises to be hysterical. In this new comedy, sisters Stella and Blanche, one from northern BC and the other from northern Ontario, try to get their mom to come out of her locked home, which has been sold, so she can move to a senior’s residence. The surprise twist ending will keep you laughing for days.

Dude, are you a child of the 90’s or a big fan of 90’s music? If you answered BOO-YAH, you’ll want to grab tickets for CFUR’s Big Shiny Tunes Tribute. This fly party takes place April 13 at the Cowboy Ranch and is hosted by CFUR Radio and Mad Loon Entertainment. This sweet and chill shindig will feature local musicians performing bangin’ songs from the Big Shiny Tunes compilation CDs. This event is all-ages from 7-10pm and 19+ after.

Hypnotist REVEEN has been seen by over 6 million Canadians and he’s returning to Prince George for one night at Vanier Hall on April 13 at 7:30 p.m. The REVEEN legend continues as the son of the original Reveen, Tyrone, takes his audience to the inner and outer reaches of their imagination with The Superconscious Experience. People from the audience become the stars in one of the wildest and funniest shows that has left millions of people crying with laughter all over the world.

Get ready to enjoy an evening of classical music with the Prince George Symphony Orchestra’s presentation of Countryside Dreams. The concert will feature Sibelius’ Finlandia and Dvorak’s Symphony No. 8 followed by the performance of the Mozart Flute Concerto by Vancouver-based flautist Roderick Seed. Make sure to grab tickets for this fantastic event on April 13 at the PG Playhouse.

On April 27, you can support a good cause and get a sweat on at the 4th Annual Climb for Cancer hosted by the Northern Lights Estate Winery. This event is suitable for all fitness levels depending on what path you choose to take. All proceeds from this event will support the Canadian Cancer Society’s Kordyban Lodge, which is a home away from home for people undergoing cancer treatment in Prince George.

The Canadian Home Builders’ Northern BC Home & Garden Show is back for its 42nd appearance, April 26 to 28, at Exhibition Park. Learn tips and trade secrets to owning a safe, healthy, maintained, and enjoyable living space. There is something for all ages, life stages, and lifestyles.
