Community Celebrations

GWI is not currently participating in any community events due to COVID-19.

Many annual community celebrations along the Gorge Waterway are sponsored by GWI member groups, and typically attended by our members with the GWI display table, Info Sheets and other outreach materials.

Annual events include: 

  • Vic West Fest in Banfield Park (early May, sponsored by Vic West Community Association)
  • Selkirk Waterfront Festival (end of May, Burnside Gorge Community Association)
  • Oceans Day Festival at Gorge Waterway Nature House (around June 8th, World Fisheries Trust)
  • Canada Day Picnic on the Gorge (July 1st, Gorge Tillicum Community Association)
  • Gorge Swim Fest (August, Gorge Swim Fest Society)
