North Delta Family Day and Parade

North Delta Family Day

The Lions Club of North Delta hosts a Family Day festival and parade at North Delta Community Park on a Sunday in June. It’s a great family-friendly event.

After a two-year hiatus, the festival and parade returned in 2022. In 2023 the festivities take place on Sunday, June 25th.


North Delta Family Day

Not to be confused with BC Family Day, which is a province-wide holiday in February, the North Delta Family Day event is an annual festival that takes place on a Sunday in the second half of June. The event is put on by the Lions Club of North Delta and it attracts lots of people.

At North Delta Family Day there is a large parade full of community organization cars and floats, bands and people in costume. After the parade, at North Delta Community Park, the festivities continue for the rest of the afternoon.


Family Day Event Location

North Delta Family Day takes place in northeast Delta a short distance southeast of Annacis Island and close to the Surrey border.

The parade usually runs along 112th Street and then 84th Avenue. The festival takes place at North Delta Community Park which is located at 11311 84th Avenue near the George Mackie Library.
