Free Admission

This charming festival produced by the City of Burnaby in collaboration with the Burnaby Rhododendron & Gardens Society, promotes the long-term sustainable, ecological health of our communities.  It presents a very unique venue for both horticulture and arts groups.

Festival highlights include variety entertainment, rovers, mini-workshops, horticultural and nature tours, plant sales, and interactive arts activities. A silent auction, artisan, and pottery sales are always crowd-pleasing favorites at this fun-filled festival!

March Fun Fly


Just a reminder that there is a Fun Fly this Sunday March 9th at Ambleside beach in North Vancouver.
