In 2017, Fairfield Gonzales Community Association will host monthly community dinners highlighting the diversity that makes our neighbourhoods thrive. Together, we will reflect on International Women’s Day, Black History Month, and Aboriginal Awareness Week. We will also celebrate Pride Month, the changing of seasons, and all of the ways that youth contribute to our communities.
Sunday, January 29th, 6pm – 8pm ~ Celebrating the New Year
Sunday, February 19th, 6pm – 8pm ~ Black History Month
Sunday, March 12th, 6pm – 8pm ~ International Women’s Day
Sunday, April 23rd, 10am – 1pm ~ Spring Fling Brunch
Sunday, May 28th, 6pm – 8pm ~ Aboriginal Awareness Week
Sunday, June 18th 6pm – 8pm ~ Pride Month
These FREE, all ages, dinners feature guest speakers, performers, arts and crafts, intergenerational dialogue, children’s story time, 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.
