Powell River Logger Sports takes the stage at Willingdon Beach for a busy 3-day weekend event in July. Competitors come from around the world and across our nation. This is serious stuff. Team work and skill combine for great entertainment in events such as Tree Climb, Axe Throw, several Springboard competitions and of course, Carving. Awards up for grabs are Canadian Championships and World Championships. The 2019 event takes place July 12th to July 14th. If you are planning to visit us during the summer, this would be a great weekend for the entire family.
BC Bike Race
The BC Bike Race is a grueling 7-stage mountain bike adventure not for the faint of heart. Powell River offers a fabulous day for the racers as they circuit through town and forest, hills and lakes on the one-day ride. Approximately 600 racers come from all around the world to participate in this legendary race. Spectators are welcomed to encourage the riders through their paces. The 2019 BC Bike Race is scheduled for July 4th to 13th, with the Powell River section on Day 3.
Naturally, since Powell River is the ultimate Canadian town, we have hockey! The Powell River Kings are our Junior A Hockey Club within the BC League of 17 teams. Season’s Tickets and Game Day tickets are available. The home team plays at the Hap Parker Arena. The regular season runs from mid-September to the end of February, and then the Playoffs get rolling, the winners awarded with the Fred Page Cup.
