A review on Facebook reads: “Best west side celebration there is. A truly neighbourhood event, it’s always wonderful to connect with others in the area. There is a ton of fun to be had!”

That sums up the Point Grey Fiesta perfectly.

If you’re anywhere in or near the Vancouver area, head to the 2017 Point Grey Fiesta from Friday June 16th through Sunday June 18th.

It’s Community Party Time

Every year, the West Point Grey Community Centre partners with local businesses and Shooting Star Amusements to host this enchanting way of bringing people together to kick off summer. In true community style, the Point Grey Fiesta is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit event that is all about families, friendship and fun.

If you like a festival with amusement rides, midway games, great food, and fun community activities, this event is for you. It is WAAAAY less stressful than going to the PNE, that’s for sure. And the views from the park or the Ferris Wheel are out of this world!

Plus… admission to all events is FREE!
