The Fellows Show

Each year the Royal Canadian Geographical Society hosts the College of Fellows Annual Dinner, its largest fundraising event of the year, to raise critical support for its broadly-educational programming initiatives.

With COVID-19 limiting large group gatherings, the Society has decided to take the event digital, producing an hour-long made-for-broadcast special, dubbed the Fellows Show, to be aired online and across Canadian Geographic's social media platforms.

To be held on November 18th, on small screens across the country, the evening will be hosted by Canadian journalist Aliya Jasmine.

The programme will feature performances from Coeur de pirate and Adrian Sutherland, presentations from literary legend Margaret Atwood and Survivorman Les Stroud, best-selling author and Monty Python star Michael Palin and the first Canadian woman in space Dr. Roberta Bondar.

When: November 18, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. EST
Where: Online

In person, our Fellows Dinner caps around 600 guests. This year, our digital Fellows Show will be pushed out to more than 200,000 social media followers across multiple Canadian Geographic platforms.

But that isn't stopping us from offering some VIP perks for the Society's supporters. Viewers who purchase a $150 VIP ticket will receive a hardcover copy of Michael Palin's North Korea Journal, along with a copy of Can Geo's new Group of Seven special publication. VIPs will also be treated to an exclusive Zoom call with RCGS Honorary Vice-President and renowned author Wade Davis, where he will talk about his new book Magdalena and answer questions from those in attendance. One lucky viewer will take home a copy of his new book. VIP tickets are an opportunity to support the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and its vital mission.

The event will be made available for free to all social media users through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn - and Canadian Geographic's digital audience of more than 1.3 million viewers.

Follow @RCGS_SGRC or @CanGeo on social media for more details.

Please note that VIP ticket holders will receive a tax receipt for the value of their donation less the cost of goods.
