Celebration of summer is back with the Tsawwassen Sun Festival

Events planned all long weekend but Monday is the big day

The Rotary Parade on Monday, Aug. 1 is always a major highlight of the Tsawwassen Sun Festival.

It’s been a long, cold, lonely spring, but here comes the Tsawwassen Sun Festival to brighten up our summer.

Sun Fest is this weekend July 30, 31 and Aug. 1.

With a jam-packed schedule, there’s something for everyone, although Monday is by far the busiest day.

To get things going, the boys and girls of summer are back, with the three-day, 20-team Tsawwassen Sun Festival Slo-pitch Tournament that takes place at the centre of the Sun Festival - Winskill Park.

Round robin play starts on Saturday and playoffs are on the holiday Monday. There’s no need to worry about getting thirsty because the Four Winds Brewery beer garden is open all three days.

That’s not the only competition on the field however.

The Grass Volleyball Tournament takes place Saturday, July 30, also in Winskill Park. It’s only $20 a person or $120 a team if you want to put a squad together and compete. If so, go to to find out how to register.

For a little slower pace, bingo is back on July 31 and Aug. 1, in the South Delta Rec Centre.

And, have you ever watched a movie outdoors? On Sunday, July 31 at Diefenbaker Park, you can catch Sing 2, under the summer stars. Bring a towel or blanket and some snacks to enhance your movie watching experience. The movie will start at dusk.

B.C. Day Monday, Aug. 1 is the big day for the festival. 

The day kicks off at 8 a.m. with a pancake breakfast, thanks to the Tsawwassen Boundary Bay Lions Club. And if you get hungry throughout the day, food trucks will be on site to enhance a stroll through the Marketplace which will be set up in centre field.

In addition, the TOOB, the Tsawwassen Order of Old B’s, will be frying up their curly fries next to the beer garden.

A highlight of the holiday Monday is the Rotary Parade which starts at 11 a.m. and runs southbound on 56th Street, from 16th Avenue, to Winskill Park. If you want to join in with a parade exhibit, you can register online at:

Monday is also the big day because of the Sun Festival Classic Car show, back for a seventh year in a row. That goes from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at Winskill Park. Music and awards and nice rides are part of the event.

With lots of people at the festival, that means lots of vehicles. Parking at Winskill Park will only be for those with disabilities, but there will be copious amounts at South Delta Secondary at 53A Street and Eighth A Avenue. A shuttle service then can whisk you over to the festival site.
