Canada Day in Pitt Meadows 2023 - Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who came out for Canada Day in Pitt Meadows! It was great to see you again.

The Canada Day event was held in šxʷhék̓ʷnəs (Spirit Square) on Saturday July 1, 2023. There was a pancake breakfast, show & shine, artisan alley, dog show, kids zone, main stage entertainment and so much more.  

Outer Rim Garrison teamed up with the Friends in Need Food Bank for Canada Day! The community was invited to have their photos taken with Star Wars characters by donation. We are happy to report that over $1500 was raised on-site for the Friends in Need Food Bank! 

Thank you to our community, volunteers and partners. A special thanks to Langley Farm Market in Pitt Meadows for donating the watermelon. It was great to be together again. See you next year.

A Place of Reflection – In order to support our community, the City has maintained a place for contemplation beside the q̓ic̓əy̓ (Katzie) First Nation flag in šxʷhék̓ʷnəs (Spirit Square). On Canada Day, we encourage residents to take a moment to consider the painful parts of Canada’s history as it relates to our past and current relations with Indigenous communities, and how to move forward together and support reconciliation.
Artists In our Parks – the City is launching the summer season of the Artists in our Parks program featuring local musicians, visual artists and performers all creating in real time in parks throughout the community.
