Businesses! Want to participate in Sechelt’s Canada Day events?

Be Part of the Canada Day Parade and/or the Craft Fair!

canada-day-featuredFollowing our annual tradition, the Sechelt Downtown Business Association is once again sponsoring and organizing the popular Sechelt Canada Day event. This includes a parade down Cowrie Street, a craft fair in Hackett Park, live music, tasty food, and a variety of activities for all ages.

Plans are well under way and we hope you’ll want to be involved this year. The Canada Day celebrations will take place on Friday, July 1, 2016. The theme of this year’s celebration is Way To Go, The Big 3-0 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the District of Sechelt.

Here’s what you need to know to participate. (Scroll down for additional information below the photograph.)

Again this year, the craft vendors and the main music stage will be located on the upper field of Hackett Park. Below, you’ll find maps of Hackett Park field with the booth locations indicated. All booths are a minimum of 10 feet by 10 feet, and will have two open sides available. We welcome crafters, artisans, and display/promotional booths.
