Hats Off Day 2020 is getting ready for take-off!

Hats Off Day kicks into 2020 with a new theme, “Out of this World”. On Saturday, June 6, 2020, Burnaby Heights expects more than 50,000 visitors and participants, and invited everyone to join the neighbourhood for a stellar time.

Hats Off Day is Burnaby’s biggest celebration and a one-day street festival where local businesses take their “hats off” to the community. From Gamma Avenue to Boundary Road, Hastings Street will be closed to traffic, and filled with excitement, including a Family Fun Dash, parade, music, street performers, kids activities, delicious food, yummy treats, Show and Shine, and much more. With a variety of action-packed activities and thrilling attractions for all ages, there is something different to experience at every turn.

“Every year, we introduce a new theme to make the Festival fresh and exciting. This year, we chose a space theme,” says Isabel Kolic, executive director of the Heights Merchants Association. “We are excited for this new theme and can’t wait to see everyone’s creativity in taking the Heights out of this world.”

The Parade and Non-Profit Community Zone Application forms are now live on the Hats Off Day web site. The Hats Off Day Organizing Committee look forward to all entries embracing this year’s theme. Any groups interested in applying are invited to visit hatsoffday.com for a complete list of criteria. The Parade Application and Non-Profit Community Zone Display Application deadline is Friday, April 10, 2020.
