Ellice Street Festival
Ellice Street Festival

The annual Ellice Street Festival in June is a fixture in the neighbourhood, bringing over 2,100 local residents out to meet and fellowship with their neighbours and the community organizations that provide services in the West End neighbourhood. This festival features a community BBQ, concerts, arts activities, recreational activities, community organization displays and fun activities like street hockey and giant chess. It also shines a positive light on a neighbourhood more accustomed to being in the spotlight for negative reasons, and It is no stretch to say that it is one of the highlights of our spring calendar for us and the community.

Holiday Concert and Dinner

Free tickets for this annual concert and dinner are distributed by the WECC and community agencies. It is an especially popular event for residents with large families. The dinner is the attraction; the concert is a fantastic way to introduce people to great local talent. We provide a full holiday meal with all the fixings, along with a visit from Santa who hands out a toy to each of the children in attendance. In Kind donations (Food Fare, CBC, Vita Health, Safeway, Shannon’s Irish Pub, Indigo etc) and volunteers help to make this dinner an annual success.
