The 21st annual Surrey Vaisakhi Day Parade, a celebration of the birth of the Sikh faith, will take place on Saturday, April 25.

 

The event, which draws in excess of 500,000 guests to take in the colourful and entertaining procession and to experience the spectacular food provided free of charge by members of the community, will take place from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. in the Newton area of Surrey and is free and open to all.

 

“In total, over 2,500 participants representing over 20 community organizations will participate in this celebratory event, with hundreds of thousands more celebrating this memorable day in roadside booths along the parade route,” said a press release.


As part of the spirit of this community celebration the roadside booths give away free food and treats to onlookers.

 

Organizers of the event, the Gurdwara Sahib Dasmesh Darbar, work with a number of supporting agencies including Fraser Health, the Surrey RCMP and the City of Surrey (including City of Surrey Bylaws office) throughout the year to ensure this important community event is safe for attendees of all ages, ethnicities and religions.
