2014 Theme: The Totally Awesome 80s – In Celebration of 30 Years of Hats Off Day
Held on the first Saturday of every June, Hats Off Day is when Heights merchants “take their hats off” to their community and their customers, and the entire Heights community celebrates together. It’s a huge, one-day extravaganza featuring a colourful main-street style parade with real local flavour, followed by a big street party.
Join us on Saturday, June 7, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and see why Hats Off Day has been voted “Burnaby’s Best Festival” by Burnaby Now readers every year since 2005! Hastings Street between Boundary Road and Gamma Avenue is shut down, and our streets are packed with families, friends, neighbours, and merchants!
Please note that vendors besides our Heights merchants are not eligible to participate. This is due to the fact that Hats Off Day is a day for Heights merchants to acknowledge and appreciate their customers and the community. We thank you for your understanding.
Volunteer and be a part of the fun and excitement that is Hats Off Day! Interested? Please contact the HMA.
