Pitt Meadows Day

About

Pitt Meadows Day is a family event that is made possible through the hard work of the Pitt Meadows Day Society and Volunteers. The event is on the first Saturday of June. Pitt Meadows Day events run all day starting at 7:00 am and running to 10:00 pm, when fireworks occur. 

History 

Pitt Meadows Day has been a treasured community event since 1937 when the first celebration took place and was actually a Pitt Meadows May Day.
 
In 1938 the name was changed to the Miss Pitt Meadows Day and Strawberry Festival, and it continued under a similar banner for a decade. The following year, 1948, late May and early June brought disaster to the area when spring freshets caused massive flooding throughout the Fraser Valley, including the lowland areas of Pitt Meadows. Round-the-clock vigilance brought the community through the calamity, but needless to say, no one had the time or energy to put together a Pitt Meadows Day celebration.
 
In 1951, the Pitt Meadows Lions Club reactivated the event under a new name, Pitt Meadows Day. In 1952, the community’s favourite tradition would start again. It would now become a set June event with the first Saturday of the month scheduled for the parade and other activities. Since 1952, Pitt Meadows Day has run unbroken, all through the efforts of community volunteers and with the support of the municipality – the district, the joint services department, and the city.
 
In 2020, due to a new disaster that had consumed the entire world, we did not have a Pitt Meadows Day, the first one missed in 68 years! For 2020 and 2021, the event was turned into a virtual celebration. Luckily, in 2022 the event re-started to great fanfare. In 2023, we saw the first change to the Royal Party in decades. This was changing the program from the “Royal Party” to “Youth Ambassadors” and the removal of gendered language and barriers.
 
As some things change, some things stay the same. Pitt Meadows Day comes around every year and every year we show our community just how much we love being a part of it.
