Celebrate Canada’s smallest city at the annual Greenwood Founders’ Day festivities. Kick off Saturday with a pancake breakfast at 8:30 am at the GVFD and then watch the parade at 11 a.m. as it floats by.
Try your hand at gold panning, or how about the pie eating contest. Immerse yourself in our small city culture. Join us as we celebrate our rich history and our diverse culture. There will be artisans, vendors, a kid zone and a beer garden. Saturday, there is a movie in the park and bingo too!
Bring your lawn chairs and your dancing shoes and get ready to kick up those heels to the live entertainment at Lions Park on HWY 3.
If you’ve never been here before, make sure you take a walking tour of this colourful city.
