Sapperton Day Street Festival returns
The 11th Annual Sapperton Day Street Festival on Sunday, June 9 is a celebration that brings over 15,000 visitors into Sapperton, showcasing its vibrant shops, services, restaurants, community organizations and home-based businesses.
Brought to the community by the Sapperton Business Association and its partners, the festival is coordinated and run entirely by local volunteers.
East Columbia Street is shut down from Braid Street all the way to Sherbrooke Street and the community is filled with music, entertainers, contests, food, information booths, prize draws, vendors and more.
All proceeds from the festival are donated to the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation. This year, Sapperton Day will raise funds for critically needed equipment, research and innovation at Royal Columbian Hospital.
The theme this year is Great Foods From Around the World, with more than a dozen food vendors, including Bella Cakes & Pastries, Dublin Castle, Gino’s Restaurant, Jamaican Me Juicy, Take 5 Café, Thai New West and Tin Lizzy Mini-Donuts.
The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
