It’s that time of year again! On June 20th 2015, Surrey Fest Downtown will be coming back for its 17th year. Surrey Fest Downtown is a real celebration of the community—made possible with the support of local businesses, sponsors, non-profit organizations, volunteers, employees of the City of Surrey, and residents.
This year, we are happy to present an impressive lineup of bands and performers on two stages. Acts ranging from the musically comedic That DAM Band to a Zumba class led by the Fit for Women Gym. Other groups includes Mission-based fusion group called the John Welsh Band, Double Shotzz (formerly known as Drift Away) and Arium, a girl band that promotes self-confidence to young girls. These acts are appropriate for all ages—you can bring everyone you know!
Kids will want to be sure that they attend Will Stroet, the engaging children’s performer who performed to sold-out houses at the 2014 Surrey Chidlren’s Festival.
The always-busy Kids Zone will be filled with engaging activities including face painting, arts and crafts, and bouncy castles. Kids will also enjoy interacting with a balloon artist and taking home their creations.
Come out and support local organizations. The silent auction and vendor booths are also back again this year. This is an excellent opportunity to check out what’s been happening in your community, support small businesses, and meet new people!
Surrey Fest Downtown is a fun, free and family friendly event put on by the Whalley Community Association and a great way bring in the summer season. It runs from 11:00am to 6pm and will be taking place in the front parking lot of the North Surrey Recreation Centre (on the corner of 102 Avenue and City Parkway) and in the plaza at Central City Shopping Centre.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
