Hyack Festival Association:
The Hyack Festival
Association works to enrich the community of New Westminster and beyond through world-class festivals and co-operative events in which the community can participate and take pride.
Throughout the year, we organize events and projects that generate community spirit including our New Westminster Hyack Ambassador Leadership Program, the International Parade and the Canada Day Fireworks on the Quay. Hyack Festival Week, held in New Westminster each May and culminating with the International Parade, has grown to become one of BC’s largest and most well-loved festivals, and is celebrating its 47th Anniversary in 2018.
The greatest impact our events have is building the ‘Spirit of Community’ and provide entertainment and community engagement that is truly inclusive, intergenerational, diverse and multicultural.
