The last month has brought with it increasingly warmer and nicer weather, and with better weather comes more events. Of course, while we are still kind of in the middle of a pandemic, it’s always good to keep your distance. But that shouldn’t hinder you from having a fun family outing.
Today we’ll be looking at a few more upcoming events in the Fraser Valley area, specifically for June.
June 6, 13, & 20 – Downtown Chilliwack Community Market
To start us off, we have the Downtown Chilliwack Community Market. A great place to find and connect with new businesses and products you might really enjoy, the DCCM is open from 10 am to 2 pm and a great place for locally grown, crafted, and brewed products. Maybe you just need some fresh carrots, well head on over to Cultus Lake after and it could be a trip worthwhile. If you’re okay with the commute, the Chilliwack Community Market could provide you with not only handmade items and fresh produce but also meaningful community interactions. You can read more about the market here: dccm.ca
June 6 – Ride for Doug 2021 (Langley)
Ride for Doug, a motorcycle charity riding against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, is on its 15th year this June. Starting at Langley’s Colossus Theatre and ending at the UFV campus in Abbotsford, you can either pick up tickets and ride in support or watch the live stream and support from home. If you feel like a midsummer cruise, this ones for you. Or maybe you just want to show your support, but don’t like objects with two wheels and an engine. That’s totally okay, you can still donate to their cause and even keep up with the ride online.
Every Saturday in June – Fort Langley Village Farmers’ Market
At the Fort Langley Village Farmers’ Market, you can meet our local BC farmers, BC Prepared food vendors, BC Craft beer, spirits, and wine vintners, and our “Best of BC” Artisans.
When: Every Saturday 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. April 10th – December 18th, 2021
Where: Fort Langley Village Farmers’ Market is located at 9025 Glover Road, Fort Langley B.C. (site of St. Andrew’s Historic Chapel)
June 18 – Golf for Kids’ Sake Tournament & Silent Auction (Abbotsford)
That brings us to another neat gathering happening this month. The Big Brothers Big Sisters Foundation is hosting a golf fundraiser at Ledgeview Golf and Country Club, which would be perfect for the golfers of the family. With tickets starting at $250, your package includes lunch, dinner, a cart rental, and 18 holes, and you can be assured that your donation is going towards a good cause. You can find out more at the Big Brothers Big Sisters website.
