How to participate

The Fiesta welcomes participants such as local community groups, sports, arts and businesses. Help make this special June weekend a success. Find out how you can participate!

Volunteers
Volunteers are the heart of Fiesta! The Point Grey Fiesta has been organized by a dedicated and enthusiastic team of volunteers since 1986. Volunteers change every year and we’re always looking for more helpful hands for many different activities. Planning begins six months before the Fiesta June weekend, and many additional volunteers are needed during the weekend itself.  Learn more about the wide variety of volunteer positions available — from media promotions and newsletter writing to poster distribution and stage crew — during the weeks leading up to the Fiesta and during the Fiesta weekend.

Saturday Parade
Join the Point Grey Fiesta parade on foot, on bicycle, in a car or with a float! All age groups are welcome. The parade starts at 10 a.m with motor cycle drill teams, marching bands, decorated floats, community groups, sports teams and much more. More about the parade

Bike decorating on Friday afternoon
Children and families are encouraged to decorate their bikes on Fiesta Friday afternoon between 4-6:30 pm at the Jericho Hill Centre. Free materials are supplied. More about decorated bikes

Saturday stage events
Sponsored by the BMO Financial Group, the Fiesta Stage is an exciting opportunity for local groups to display their talents for the community, friends and families.

Saturday stage times are from 11:00am to 4:00pm. Performances take place on a raised stage under the cover of a 30ft tent. Kian Sound provides the professional sound equipment and services. More about music and shows

Field events
The Park is also home to roving performers that keep children of all ages entertained. Look for clowns, balloon people, mimes and jugglers. If you keep walking west, you’ll arrive at the Community Centre Day Camp and the wading pool.

Exhibitors
Exhibitors are most welcome on Fiesta Saturday. Exhibitors add to the Fiesta spirit by providing information and awareness of their services to the community. Typical exhibitors are local businesses, art and music schools, community groups and other organizations of interest to the families and children. More about exhibiting

Silent Auction
The Fiesta Silent Auction is a major undertaking that involves dozens of volunteer coordinators and the Point Grey Village Business Improvement Association. More than one hundred donations are collected, labeled and displayed on tables on Fiesta Saturday. At the end of the day, bid sheets are collected and the auction items are distributed.
