StreetFest on Central is Burnaby’s Canada Day celebration going down July 1 2023. Located between Metrotown and Patterson Skytrain Station, the summer festival is a huge draw with food, concerts, and a fireworks show. Burnaby is the FUN city! The event kicks off in the evening at 6PM. That means you can have a family BBQ then head over to Burnaby  for the entertainment.

The event is very well organized and definitely worth attending.
