Recovery Day BC 2017

September 9, 2017 @ 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Join us for a spectacular Street Festival on September 9, 2017 6th Ave & 6th street in New Westminster.

On September 9, 2017, people in recovery from addiction will join with friends and family to build awareness, challenge societal stigma, and celebrate the role that recovery plays in improving life for individuals, families, and communities. We believe that recovery saves lives. We envision a world in which recovery from addiction is a common, celebrated reality – a world where individuals will not experience shame when seeking help. We are passionate about sharing the faces, voices and stories of recovery in hopes of inspiring and inviting others to join us on the rewarding, yet diverse, path to wholeness. Together, we will demonstrate the power and proof of recovery from addiction.

A Free Event to Celebrate Overcoming Addiction



Whether you are in recovery, an ally to someone who is in recovery, or you just think that sobriety is awesome – come on out! Everyone is welcome to celebrate recovery from addiction.

This is a substance-free, wicked-awesome and family-friendly event all in one. Part music festival, part carnival, part educational event: Recovery Day BC is a celebration, a rally, a memorial for those lost, and a tool to raise awareness for recovery while reducing the stigma of addiction recovery.

  • Kids Zone, facepainter, clowns, bouncy castle
  • Memorial Centre, honouring those lost
  • Food Trucks
  • Mental Health and Addiction Wellness Info Booths
  • TEDx Style Speakers
  • Street Circus for the whole family
