The Hyack Festival Association presents a suite of events for the community, about the community and by the community. All of these events are family-friendly and are designed to engage community involvement.
The Hyack Festival Association parades have entertained and inspired our community and visitors from around the world for almost 50 years.
Each year the spectacular floats, award winning marching bands, talented equestrians, and colourful community groups perform for hundreds of thousands of parade goers on the streets of New Westminster.
This year the Hyack Festival is evolving these traditions to celebrate community spirit and resilience, and inspire hope.
We invite you to celebrate with us by Parading in Place! Join the festivities by submitting your entries for all of our events.
