Upcoming Events

McSpadden County Fair

This fall marks the Second annual McSpadden County fair, to be held at McSpadden Park (located along Victoria Drive between 3rd and 6th Ave) September 10, 2017. The Fair will bring an already vibrant community together for some harvest time fun.

The McSpadden County Fair will pair the favorite rich traditions of country fairs, with the diversity of urban living. Carnival games, pie contests, raffles, information booths on sustainable urban agriculture practices like beekeeping, gardening, chicken rearing, canning, and effective recycling will be featured, along with the soon to be East Van favorite ZUCCHINI RACES. Last year we had over 60 entries, so get your creative wheels turning on how you will build the fastest racer!

Live music, loads of games and activities for families and delicious food trucks will fill out the experience. The Fair will also feature baskets for auction and amazing prizes from several local businesses.

We hope you will be as excited as we are to continue this a new tradition in East Vancouver.
