Coming Events

 

 

The City of Surrey will host the ninth annual Party for the Planet, BC’s largest Earth Day celebration,
at Surrey Civic Plaza on Saturday, April 13, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The signature Surrey event will feature the new under cover
Live Green World, offering environmental workshops, a sustainable marketplace, acoustic concert series and local vendors.

Presented by TD, this year’s free event will offer 1,000 complimentary plants to attendees and provide an abundance of
opportunities for all ages to learn about environmental initiatives. The Adventure Zone will include a free zip line, rock
climbing wall, road hockey and food trucks. This year’s tree and plant sale will offer native trees for $20 each, and plants
from $2 to $4. Soulful singer Colin Bullock, indie pop duo Harlequin Gold, and children’s performers Bobs & Lolo will
perform on the TD Main Stage, located inside Council Chambers. Live music will be heard throughout the event, with a
DJ in the Adventure Zone and acoustic performances in Live Green World and City Hall Atrium.

“We are very excited to present Live Green World at this year’s Party for the Planet, where attendees can learn how
to live more sustainably through workshops and support local businesses in the environmental marketplace,” said Mayor Doug McCallum.
“We invite residents and visitors to celebrate sustainable community growth, experience live entertainment for all ages,
and discover new ways to decrease their environmental footprint at this year’s event.”

“TD is proud to be the presenting sponsor of Party for the Planet - B.C.’s largest Earth Day celebration - for almost a decade,” said
Andy Cribb, Senior Vice President, TD Bank Group. “TD has been committed to giving back to Surrey, through events like the
annual TD Tree Days and through a contribution to the TD Nature Play area at Forsyth Park in Surrey City Centre. We look
forward to celebrating Earth Day with the community.”

Additional festival attractions include a Surrey Parks display, a Library Stage featuring children’s performers, an Enviro-Bungee,
meet and greets with Big Bird and Elmo, environmental educational booths, kid’s crafts and a variety of local vendors.

A complete list of activities and performers can be found here. 
 

 

Looking for Volunteers to help out with a Repair Cafe on Earth Day at Alexandra Hall at Crescent Beach. Let us know if you want to help and have an expertise to share!?!

A "Repair Cafe" is a group of volunteers and community members who come together to provide a space and share their skills/expertise to reduce waste and keep things out of the landfill by fixing broken items like bikes and small appliances and mending clothing. Volunteer "Fixers" have fun doing something useful and satisfying and get to help pass on their skills to others. We will also be having a fun art activity for kids all about turning recycling into art.
