Surrey Vaisakhi Parade
April 20, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
For many thousands of years, in Indian culture, Vaisakhi has been the time when farmers have put their sickles to harvest and celebrated the coming of a new year. Vaisakhi is also a time to celebrate the day the Khalsa (a special group of initiated sikhs) was created.
The Surrey Vaisakhi Parade has been held in the streets of the community for the past 17 years, everyone is welcome to join in the festivities, which include live music, floats, performances, and more. Another unique element of Vaisakhi is a attendees are given free food and drink from hundreds of local residents and businesses – which pays tribute to the celebration of harvest roots of the holiday.
Location of this event is set to where the parade begins.
