Quadra Village Day 2012. Celebrating 10 Years!

Who doesn’t love a free, family-friendly, all-ages celebration? Especially when food is involved.

You’ll find all that and more at the 10th annual Quadra Village Day, Saturday May 12th from 9:30 am to 1pm.

I’ve been actively involved on the planning committee since shortly after moving to the Hillside-Quadra neighbourhood in 2006. It’s wonderful to see people pulling together – businesses, not-for-profits, citizens (young and old), community groups – in celebration.

We’re proud to be able to provide an event, open to all, that is completely free – including both pancake and healthy start breakfasts.

More information on our website.

Start off the day with breakfast, stay for the activities and demonstrations, pull up a seat to listen to wonderful music and watch talented dancers, visit the various community booths, and chat with your neighbours.

Musicians include:

Rob Rosborough and Ian Welsh, Tremble Aspen, Chris Ho, and Carmanah.

Dance performances by:

The UVic Cuban Salsa Club, The Chinese Seniors Dance Troupe, the Sons of Norway Folk Dancers, and the Vic City Breakers.

Don’t miss the Quadra Village Day Dance “flash-mob” at 11am.

Quadra Village Day would not be possible without the generous participation and support from our sponsors, and the help of over 100 volunteers.
