Sapperton street festival makes neighbourly contribution


The Sapperton Business Association is celebrating the latest charitable results from its annual street festival as the group gears up for this year’s event in support of Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation.

The Sapperton Day Street Festival raised $13,000 last year for the hospital. This year’s event takes place Sunday, June 12th from 11am to 5pm and includes bouncy castles, clowns, jugglers, games, live performances, mini-donuts, a pancake breakfast from 10am to noon, rock climbing wall, vendors and more.

The Sapperton Day Street Festival is a non-profit community event put together by the Sapperton Business Association with some help from its community partners and sponsors. This will be the event’s 14th consecutive year after returning from a hiatus. Sapperton Days has been around since the early 1970’s.
