Surrey 2010 Celebration Site

Comments 9 by Rebecca Bollwitt

During the 2010 Winter Games it won’t just be Vancouver and Whistler bubbling with excitement, events, and festivities of global proportions. The City of Surrey is an official Celebration Site during the Olympics with Holland Park being the centre of it all.

Surrey Fusion Festival

From February 12th until February 28th you can check out daily concerts and activities at Holland Park in Surrey. Right between King George & Surrey Central SkyTrain stations it’s super easy to get to and you won’t have to worry about driving through “red zones” or finding a meter to park [Google Map]

“Staff have put together an impressive line-up of top-notch artists for Surrey’s Celebration Site at Holland Park,” said Mayor Dianne Watts. “I can’t think of a better way to be a part of the Olympic Spirit than enjoying some of Canada’s best LIVE talent!”

Here is the FULL LINEUP of FREE shows in Surrey during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games:

The Celebration Site will be open Wednesdays through Sundays from 3:00pm until 10:00pm with extended hours on Fridays and Saturdays where the festivities will go until 11:00pm. Everything will also be simulcast on five massive video screens along with televisions placed throughout the site.

This will kind of be like their annual Winterfest (with skating rink, sliding zone, sustainability zone) but on a much larger scale including the torch relay and an art showcase.

Winterfest 2009 in Surrey

John and I have been attending and covering Surrey events for a few years now and I can personally attest to how well-organized, well-planned, and flat out entertaining they are. I must also add that the absolute best thing about this is that it is completely and totally FREE.

You can find event listings on Facebook or Twitter as well.

Update February 1, 2010 The Torch Relay is making its way through Surrey February 8th and 9th. You can check out a full map of the route here.
