The annual Surrey Vaisakhi Parade is taking place on April 19th, bringing together over 200,000 people in the community and beyond to celebrate one of the most important days in the Sikh calendar, the creation of the Khalsa.
This is one of the the world’s largest Vaisakhi parades of its kind outside of India and will feature live music, performances, lively floats, along with food and drink compliments of local residents and businesses. We’re so fortunate to live in a region where people of all cultures and religions are invited to participate in the celebrations of others. This will be a joyous day filled with great food and atmosphere.
