In 2017, Fairfield Gonzales Community Association will host monthly community dinners highlighting the diversity that makes our neighbourhoods thrive.
Sunday, July 23rd, 6pm – 8pm ~ Picnic in our Food Forest
Sunday August 27th, 6pm – 8pm ~ summer BBQ
Sunday October 22nd, 6pm – 8pm ~ Friendsgiving Potluck
Sunday November 19th 6pm – 8pm ~ World Street Food
These FREE, all ages, dinners feature guest speakers, performers, arts and crafts, inter-generational dialogue, delicious meals and more!
Because of the popularity of the event, we will hand out tickets at the door beginning 15 minutes before the dinner starts for 80 people. Anyone not receiving a ticket is welcome to stay but we will only have capacity to serve 80.
All community dinners will be taking place on unceded Coast Salish Territory, specifically of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples.
This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between the Victoria Foundation, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast. Our goal is to apply these funds to cultivating conversations about the settler-colonial history of Canada and its ongoing legacy that impacts all communities.
RSVP on Facebook.
