2017 was the 50th Anniversary of Metchosin Day!

The Sunday right after Labour Day is always Metchosin Day. It is a fun day and free for the whole family. Starting at 8 am the five-kilometer run/walk leaves from the community hall and ends at the Metchosin Community House. There are valuable prizes (fresh Metchosin produce) for fastest in all age classes, and terrific draw prizes. The Scouts will serve pancake breakfast to runners, vendors and volunteers and public.

Not only is Metchosin Day FREE, so is the parking. Of course, we are grateful for your support and donations ... There is space for hundreds of cars adjacent to the village green.

More than 150 vendors, displays and exhibits will be set up in Village Centre and Village Green - from CRD Parks and Community Groups, Farmers' Market vendors, wool spinning, pottery, jewelry, produce, dog treats, soaps, plants, herbs, balloons, fashions, honey, aprons, baked goods, flowers, natural wood products, jams, body art and much more ...

If you just want to relax, the pavilion offers a full day of free entertainment. You can sit down and listen to local talent of jazz, blues, rock and roll and country. The main stage has it all!
