Pitt Meadows Day is a free event with live music, food trucks, a parade and more around Harris Road Park. It happens on the first Saturday of June each year.
Pitt Meadows Day Event
Pitt Meadows Day is a long-running tradition that has been taking place since 1938. Over the last few decades it has grown into the community’s largest event.
The celebration of the city brings folks from Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge and other parts of the Lower Mainland together for a fun day of festivities. It’s an event that Pitt Meadows residents look forward to each year.
2022 marks the 81st annual Pitt Meadows Day event. In previous years the event was organized by the Pitt Meadows Day Society. However, this year’s celebrations have been planned by the City of Pitt Meadows itself.
The event takes place on the first Saturday of June which is June 4th in 2022. Most of the activities take place in and around Harris Road Park. The venue’s address is 12474 Lougheed Highway in Pitt Meadows.
This year the activities begin at 8:00 am and continue until after 10:00 pm. As always, Pitt Meadows Day is free to attend.
Activities and What to Expect
In 2020 and 2021 Pitt Meadows Day took place in a virtual format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There were online markets, community booths, craft ideas and other activities.
Pitt Meadows Day returns to its usual in-person format in 2022. Organizers this year anticipate large crowds of people, especially since this is the first normal Pitt Meadows Day since 2019. Expect to see lots of families participating in the celebrations and various activities.
In years prior to the COVID-19 pandemic there used to be activities on the day at Pitt Meadows Regional Airport as well as at the park in the city. This isn’t the case, however, in 2022. There are no special events or activities at the airport this year (or at least not to our knowledge).
Pitt Meadows Day in 2022 begins with the Lion’s Pancake Breakfast in the morning. The cost per person is $5 for adults and $2 for children ages 10 and under. Breakfast is at Heritage Hall at 12460 Harris Road.
After the breakfast is when the free activities begin, starting with the parade at about 11:00 am. The parade happens along a section of Harris Road which is closed from the morning. Expect to see people gathered on the sidewalks watching parade floats and other entries passing by.
Afternoon and Evening Activities
Harris Road Park is where you’ll find the Kids’ Zone with fun activities made for children in the afternoon. The park is also where the artisan market and field exhibitors are, along with a stage for live entertainment.
Performers in 2022 include Danielle Ryan, Almost Famous, Todd Richard and more. Around 8 different food trucks are also on site serving everything from lemonade and ice cream to pizza and fish and chips.
New for 2022 is the Family-Friendly Beverage Garden. Adults are given wristbands and can purchase alcohol until the evening. Kids and teens can buy a variety of other drinks in the same section of the event as well.
In addition to the pancake breakfast, Heritage Hall also hosts a barbeque dinner this year between 5:00 and 7:00 pm. The food costs $12 per person regardless of your age.
Pitt Meadows Day in 2022 concludes with a fireworks display at Pitt Meadows Athletic Park at 11431 Bonson Road. It’s about a 30-minute walk or 10-minute drive further south from Harris Road Park. The fireworks blast off at 10:00 pm.
