Crescent Heights Village Days celebrates the people and places in Crescent Heights. Over the month of June a variety of gatherings will occur in Crescent Heights. Some of these events are organized by Crescent Heights Community Association, and many more are organized by residents, businesses and organizations based in Crescent Heights.
The main goal of each event is to safely gather residents (online or in-person) of Crescent Heights and have residents explore the neighbourhood while developing a deeper connection to the people who live or work within our community.
The Village Days Planning Guide is packed with examples of community event/project ideas along with a step-by-step instruction guide to having a successful event. Please note that many of these can not be used while we are currently in COVID-19 restrictions. Please use proper judgment when considering organizing any of these events.
