Hats Off Day


Hats Off Day is a huge, one-day street festival featuring a colourful main-street style parade with real local flavour, followed by a big street party. Hastings Street from Boundary Road to Gamma Avenue is car-free, and our streets are packed with families, friends, neighbours, and merchants!

Come see why Hats Off Day has been voted “Burnaby’s Best Festival” by Burnaby Now readers every year since 2005!
