Learn from the past to inform the future

2017 marked the Festival’s second iteration. Celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary and the City of Burnaby’s 125th anniversary, the theme for 2017 was “Learn from the Past to Inform the Future.” Reflecting on tumultuous historical events, like Vancouver’s riots, through to the modernization and development of the modern day electric railway line, the 2017 Festival events provided glimpses of how our community’s past still remains with us, today.
