9th Haida Gwaii PGI
June 26, 2021, 6PM PST
Every year in early summer Literacy Haida Gwaii hosts fundraising extravaganzas, most often in partnership with the Peter Gzowski Invitational. Originally conceived as a national series of locally produced golf tournaments featuring musicians, media and literacy celebrities, this event has morphed into some very loose associations with the game of golf, especially in small communities. Join Literacy Haida Gwaii for a virtual event this year with a very special line-up of guests from across Canada. Rick Mercer will be the program host, with CBC’s “The Current” show host Matt Galloway opening the event. Mystery novelist Louise Penny will talk about literacy, and award-winning musicians Twin Flames, the Indigenous Indie music duo, Cape Breton fiddler Ashley MacIsaac and roots/folk singer Stephen Fearing will provide the entertainment. Our Haida Gwaii Poet Laureate is Jenny Nelson.
E-tickets are sold at $20. Every dollar supports literacy programs on Haida Gwaii. Click below to purchase your ticket.

The Ball Field /Gather
Back in 1994, a handful of Queen Charlotte farmers began a tailgate roadside market. After 25 years of community support, the Queen Charlotte Farmers’ Market now operates year-round under the shelter of a purpose-built kiosk at the Ball Field by the Community Club, as well as at Gather, a few blocks down the road.
Times are unpredictable, but in the past a hot lunch was always available alongside farm-grown produce, fresh sourdough bread, homemade preserves, local pork, beef, chicken and eggs.
Seasonal May – Oct
Storage facility by Fire Hall
(& giant carrot on Highway 16)
Get up close and personal with local farmers in Tlell. Operating out of their own greenhouse behind the fire hall, this market has played an important part in supporting food security in the region for more than 8 years.
Located just South of Naikoon Provincial Park, the Market connects food producers with neighbours with farm-fresh produce, hot food service and live music.
June 6, 2021 – August 29, 2021
Sun 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
ALM School covered walkway
Handmade, homemade, and homegrown are the pillars of the Moresby Farmers’ Market in Sandspit. Under the covered walkway at Agnes L. Mathers School, local families, food producers, and musicians congregate Sunday mornings to chat over fresh coffee and baked goods.
As children bounce around the playground, and waves lap at the shore, it’s easy to imagine summer is endless.
Fri 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Across from Co-op
1575 Main St. Masset
Community spirit is always available at the Masset Farmers’ Market in Haida Gwaii. This open-air market may have started small, but it grows a little bit more every Friday as more and more locals set up their tents and tables in the centre of town to greet the day.
Because this small community off BC’s west coast stays cool year round, fresh greens are plentiful, and it’s not uncommon to find kale, mizuna, and arugula in the middle of December!
