We are sorry to inform you that this years 2020 Earth Day parade run by Windermere Secondary School’s Youth for Climate Justice Now has been canceled due to health risks. 


In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and given the recent provincial announcement banning gatherings of 250 people or more, we regret to announce the cancellation of the Commercial Drive Earth Day Parade and Festival for 2020. Thank you for your understanding. We are so grateful for the amazing support we have received throughout our planning process from funders, community partners, donors, and volunteers. We hope to work with you all next year and make Earth Day 2021 happen. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at youth4climate@gmail.com or contact our sponsor teacher Ms. Petra Rempel at prempel@vsb.bc.ca 

Thank you, Youth 4 Climate Justice Now. 

Since 2011, we’ve invited people across the city to march in our annual Earth Day parade from Commercial Drive and Broadway to Grandview Park. There, participants are greeted by a celebration complete with speakers, musicians, and all the good things that come with gathering together as a community to address the things that matter most today.
