We invite you to join, play, and tour the wide variety of events planned throughout the City of Burnaby in early May. The Festival celebrates the rich array of cultural, natural and city spaces on offer.

We create the platform for fun-filled experiences and exciting initiatives – you simply bring your curiosity.
