Special Events in the Village of Pemberton

Pemberton’s broad definition of culture, one that not only includes the traditional art forms, but also includes the lifestyle and activities of residents is refreshing. When looked at through this broad lens, it is evident that culture contributes significantly to the quality of life in Pemberton. Access to all forms of culture and the benefits growing from that culture, is the primary reason why people want to live, visit and celebrate in Pemberton. This strong, diverse culture attracts new residents and retains talent, fosters economic endeavours, provides a setting for strong, collaborative partnerships and cultivates a shared community identity.

A component of Pemberton's culture includes community celebrations, festivals and sporting events.  These events further strengthen and support our culture and provides economic benefits for our local businesses.

Slow Food Cycle Sunday

The Slow Food Cycle Sunday began over a conversation at the Helmer's family farm in 2005. The seed of the idea to connect city folk to their food and farmers to the people who buy and eat their food was modest. There was no way of knowing that the event would spawn countless other Slow Food Cycling events around the world, or that the farmers and participants would grow to love this event so much that it would grow each year, becoming almost a festival of farm-to-table food and family cycling. Connecting with Slow Food was an obvious choice, as Anna Helmer was already a member and advocate for the movement.

The event combines a perfect summer day, slow cycling, and family farms to provide a festival that highlights what makes Pemberton an ideal community: We're just far enough from the bustle of the city, but have what's important: community, good food, great weather. Experiencing this lifestyle for the day gives families a great excuse to just be together enjoying sunshine, good food and a leisurely bicycle tour through the flat Pemberton Meadows. Musicians play while local chefs prepare food grown on-site. This event is an all-day festival. No need to rush, or feel like you must go to every farm. Just let your belly be your guide as you meander from farm to farm, meeting new people, eating local foods.

Where: Village of Pemberton to Pemberton Meadows

Cost: $5 per per person / $20 per family
