The Thunder Bay Country Market is a year-round farmers’ market held Saturdays between 8am and 1pm and Wednesdays from 4-7pm during Harvest Season.

We Make it, Bake it, Grow it.

Over 100 vendors attend every Market day, year-round, with additional farmers attending during the summer months; we’re proud to be the largest producer-based market in Northwestern Ontario.  An average of 6,000 visitors shop for local meats, cheese, eggs, produce, baking, meals and crafts every week.

The Market is a sustainable engine of the Thunder Bay economy, with a real impact of close to $8 million on our community.

For our vendors, the Market represents an opportunity to earn a living doing something they’re great at and that they love.  For many of our customers it’s a place to buy groceries, crafts and gifts from the talented, hard-working people who created them.  For others it’s a meeting-place full of good people where they can get in touch with some of the simpler things in life.

At the Thunder Bay Country Market you’ll always know exactly what you’re buying.  Our producers know that happy, confident customers will tell their friends about the Market; they dedicate themselves to answering your questions.

The game play this year is going to be based off multiplayer modes from popular video games. Scenarios will be posted in the coming months, but some examples are Search & Destroy from Call of Duty and the new "Breakout" mode that is going to be in Halo 5.

What is Teen Challenge?

Luncheon of Hope

91.5 CKPR is proud to be the sponsor of the Annual Tbaytel Luncheon of Hope being held on October 9th

This event will be held at the Victoria Inn Hotel & Convention Centre. The Exhibit Fair beings at 10:30 am, followed by Symposium at 11:00am. Tickets are $50 / person. All funds raised will support the Northern Cancer Fund for Breast Cancer.

If you have never attended this event, be sure to bring your tissues. Why you may ask? Every year there are stories that bring tears and laughter as the speakers share their moving and personal journeys.

Breast Cancer touches us all in different ways. Maybe it’s because Breast Cancer is the most common cancer among women and we all know someone who has struggled through this journey. Maybe it’s the fact that breasts are such an important part of a woman’s physique that a disease associated with them makes us hurt. Or maybe, it’s because each year we sit at the tables of this special luncheon; and realize that statistically speaking; about one women sitting at each table will have this disease in her lifetime.

The good news is, breast cancer death rates have been continuously declining since the 1980’s, and each year; guests have an impact on the research, diagnosis, and treatment of breast cancer here in Northwestern Ontario.

You won’t want to miss this year’s Tbaytel Luncheon of Hope, even if it means you might shed a few tears.

Nipigon Fall Fishing Tourament

91.5 CKPR is pleased to present the Nipigon Fall Fishing Festival
September 3th – 7th

It’s more than just a fishing derby!

It is a chance for families, friends and visitors to get together and have an enjoyable time.

What makes the event more than a fishing derby?  Follow the parade that begins in downtown Nipigon and finishes at the arena.  While you’re at the arena, make sure you enjoy the booths, raffles, food, entertainment and prizes.  If you feel like getting some fresh air you can go geocaching, go outside and watch a baseball game, take in the classic car display, participate in races or test your skills in the Firemen’s Challenge.  If you need a chance to relax, come on over to the curling club and see some fish being entered.  Later in the afternoon, you can grab something to eat at several locations and take in the dance if you like.  On Sunday evening don't forget about the entertainment and fireworks at the waterfront.

The Nipigon Fall Fishing Festival has been a family oriented festival since 1965.

The different activities offered are intended to cover all age ranges so everyone can have fun.

Many local volunteer organizations benefit from the festival.  These organizations provide essential services to our community and other larger organizations.  Your participation helps them in their efforts.  For the past number of years the festival has also provided a bursary to a local student who is continuing their post-secondary education.  Applications can be made by writing a short letter to the committee.  Our local businesses and merchants also benefit from the festival.

Open Streets Thunder Bay

91.5 CKPR is proud to be a sponsor of the Open Street Thunder Bay on Sunday, September 27th

On Sunday, September 27th from 11am – 4pm; Eco Superior will be holding the third Open Streets Thunder Bay ! 1.4 km of Court St will be closed to motorized vehicles and opened up to pedestrians, cyclists, rollerbladers, and dog walkers. Between John St and Camelot St people can also enjoy free and accessible activities for all ages and abilities. Open Streets takes place during the City of Thunder Bay’s Culture Days so we can re-imagine our city streets, create people places, and celebrate Thunder Bay’s music, art, film, dance, and heritage all in one day!
When these events are held consistently throughout the year they encourage regular physical activity and are considered to be one of the best programs any city can initiate to improve access to recreational opportunities. Open Streets programs exist globally and are held in large and small cities across North America.  These initiatives focus on creating an environment where people of all ages, abilities, and social, economic, and ethnic backgrounds can experience their community in new and exciting ways. While these tremendously successful programs vary in every community, they share several common elements: a focus on physical activity, engagement of community groups, removal of financial barriers to participation and a celebration of space and community.
Open Streets offer a fun and innovative way for a community to achieve environmental, social, economic, and public health goals.

Come up with a ridiculous, catchy or fun team name, create a whacky costume or unique theme and register online to reserve your team bike. Registering online along with fundraising will secure your bike for event day.

After a welcoming opening ceremony and warm-warming dedication to a local child or family, each team member rides for 5 or 10 minutes at a pace that will allow for prolonged fun, not momentary vomiting, to uplifting music while a professional and motivating emcee engages and energizes everyone. The Awards and Thank You Ceremony wind up a meaningful and sometimes sweaty day.
