Since its humble beginnings as a church fundraiser, which drew about 1,500 people in 2001, the goal of Langley’s International Festival has always been to foster a sense of unity among the vast array of cultures which make up the community.

Now, that co-operative spirit is being taken a step further, as the International Festival and Langley’s annual Canada Day celebrations officially join forces.
The celebration of national pride, and of the diversity that makes Canada a unique and welcoming place, will happen over four days, from June 28 to July 1 at Willoughby Community Park. Read more at Langley Times.
