Quadra Village Day 2013

It’s time again for my neighbourhood’s favourite event – Quadra Village Day 2013! This year we celebrate the 11th annual event, one planned and executed with an entirely volunteer-run planning committee and close to 100 event-day volunteers.  This vibrant diverse neighbourhood is proud to be “Building and Celebrating our Thriving Community”.

Thanks to generous sponsors and donors the event is entirely FREE – and that includes two breakfasts (pancake and Healthy Start), activities for children and teens, and music and dance performances.

A multitude of community groups will be present too.


JOIN US SATURDAY, MAY 11, 9:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.


Drop by Kings Rd between Quadra and Dowler, and enjoy fun, free, all-ages activities.

Begin with the Pancake Breakfast and Healthy Start Breakfast at 9:30am.

Stay for musical performances from 9:30 -1:00 by West My Friend, The Grass Tracks and Towers and Trees.

Watch for dance performances on the second stage.

Parents, kids and teens: check out all the fun activities, including: face painting, BouncyCastle, an obstacle course, games, and Mother’s Day crafts.

New this year!  A climbing wall for teens.
