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 in person this year to enjoy:
- Team Trivia Challenge (5.30pm)
- Appie Buffet – Around the World Flavours (6.30pm)
- Learners Award Ceremony (7.30pm)
- As well as a very special line-up of musical guests (8.00pm) including: Haida songstress Carsen Gray, music composer David Archer and ‘Old’s Cool’!
Tickets are sold at $25.
Every dollar supports literacy programs on Haida Gwaii. Visit the following link to purchase your ticket: 10TH PGI FUNDRAISER | Literacy Haida Gwaii (crowdchange.ca)

The Ball Field /Gather
Back in 1994, a handful of Daajing Giids farmers began a tailgate roadside market. After 25 years of community support, the Daajing Giids 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 29 2022 – Oct (tbd)
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 12, 2022 – September 11, 2022
Sun 11:00 am – 1:00 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!

ALL NATIVE BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT
For more than six decades, basketball has played a huge part in the Haida experience. Everyone has family and friends who play in the annual All Native Basketball Tournament, if they don’t play themselves. Every winter, excitement builds as the Haida Nation prepares to represent the communities of Haida Gwaii. In some ways, this sport is a modern and friendly way of engaging in long-standing coastal competition between Indigenous nations. A lot of fun for spectators, too!
