It’s back! This February, we get cool once again at the second annual Great Canadian Winter Festival. We’ll be celebrating Canadian art, food and sport in a way that is uniquely ours. Festivities will include:
From Feb. 14-28, explore our tasty market offerings and play bingo. Grab a bingo card from any of our merchants and fill in a line for a chance to win a $200 market prize!
Cheer on our great Canadian athletes as they compete in the 2014 Winter Olympics. Track the standings on our chart, or catch some of the action onscreen at Tre Galli Gelato, Paddlewheeler Pub and Wild Rice New West. Go Team Canada! On Sunday Feb. 16, we’re teaming up with KidSport New Westminster to bring you a fun table hockey tournament, and the Royal City Curling Club will bring “Rings and Rocks” for those who want to check out curling, Canada’s other other national sport!
Come enjoy the Artisan’s Fair on Saturday, February 15th from 11-4 (same time as the Royal City Farmers Market). Also make sure to check out Mid Mid-Century Modern HOME and the Artisans at River Market shop. Celebrate Canadian creativity and ingenuity!
Explore our restaurants, enjoy some special guests (Kettle Corn and Maple Syrup…T’ir D’erable anyone) and eat up! The highlight of our foodie festival will be our first ever Poutine Battle, waged by Tre Galli Gelato Caffe, Wild Rice, Longtail Kitchen, Re-Up BBQ and special guest The Spud Shack Fry Co. at 2 p.m. on Feb. 16. Who will have the best flavours? Who will be the most entertaining? For a $5 donation you can taste all that these talented folks whip up and get in on the judging. Donations go to Kids Sport New Westminster. The winning team will receive the coveted golden potato.
