Community Day Event Planning Working Group

Community Day, held the first Saturday in June, is a celebration of West Vancouver’s community bringing together citizens to celebrate and showcase individuals, groups and the community as a whole. Over the years, Community Day has featured a variety of different activities such as maypole dancing, a parade, music and dance stages, a beer garden, arts and crafts, sustainability and information zones, and children’s activities. 

The working group will develop a plan that honours the values of the community; addresses the cultural diversity and interests of the residents; and anticipates future needs.

Purpose

The working group's main functions are to provide advice (e.g. information, options, analysis and recommendations) to Council regarding the development of an event framework to recreate the annual Community Day Celebrations - that is reflective of our current community and residents’ interest and diversity.

All members of the working group will be part of a collaborative process to develop a new event plan for West Vancouver’s Community Day celebration.

Duties

The working group will review existing information regarding the annual Community Day event in West Vancouver, such as:

  • the history of the event
  • the District’s Special Events Policy
  • recent and relevant community demographic data and studies
  • analysis of unique celebrations hosted by other municipalities in the Greater Vancouver Regional District (GVRD) and abroad
  • other related documents as appropriate.

Based on a review of relevant information and findings, the working group will make recommendations to Council.

Term

The term of the working group is one year or until the work is completed, whichever is earlier.

September 2017 to April 2018.
