Feature Events
Harbour Pass


We're big on experience here, which is why we developed our very own adventure passport! Bonavista Peninsula is fortunate to have so many local businesses in the area, and they like to get involved in events. We choose up to 10 businesses to be featured on the Harbour Pass. Harbour Fall Fest guests have to visit these businesses/featured locations to get a stamp to earn entries to our grand door prize! It's all about getting out to explore the area and what we have to offer - and of course the chance at winning some awesome prizes!


Let's just explain how it works in detail:

You pick up your Harbour Pass at Ye Matthew Legacy Building here in Bonavista. Make sure you fill out the back with you contact information! 

Bring it with you to each featured location and get it stamped on that locations designated space.

When you're done adventuring or collected all the stamps, your can tear off the stamped perforated section (with contact information on the back) and drop it in an official drop box.

Official drop boxes can be found at each designated location.

Great news - you get to keep the other section as a keepsake.. show your friends what they missed out on so they'll join you next year!

Prizes are drawn in 3 random draws - entries for 10/10 locations, 8/10 locations and 6/10 locations. 10/10 being our grand prize, 8/10 and 6/10 being consolation prizes.

Stay tuned for prize announcements!


Let's start this story off at the beginning; it's been a rough couple of years on everyone, in one way or another. The mindset that safety comes with isolation and distance seems to have clung to us, and we find ourselves forgetting how much we truly need eachother. The summers here are always a breath of fresh air, immersing ourselves in welcoming visitors to our neck of the woods. But then the fall comes, everything slows down, the visitors leave, and take with them the excitement of the adventures they had here and the lively hustle and bustle. So it only makes sense that we have to try to extend that sense of togetherness and community that we crave! This fueled the idea of a fall festival, and the beginning of Harbour Fall Fest! We keep the excitement and fun going, while bringing the fall flare that everyone loves! Embrace the changes and the, harvesting, if you will, of all the memories made from past seasons. Our purpose is to bring the community and visitors together to celebrate the change in season and embrace the new adventures that the fall brings us! We can't wait to see you here!
