Surrey Doors Open is happening on Saturday with dozens of local organizations, recreation centres, cultural institutions, and businesses opening their doors for free for public tours. In the heart of Downtown Surrey, the Whalley’s Corner Community Festival will be one of the free shuttle bus stops available during Surrey Doors Open.
Whalley’s Corner Festival
On Saturday, June 27th stop by the 2nd annual Whalley’s Corner Community Festival on Grosvenor Road at the intersection of 108 Ave and King George Blvd.

This Surrey neighbourhood is where I grew up and it’s full of history. Take the opportunity to explore it on June 27th by taking the hop-on/hop-off Surrey Doors Open shuttle on the City Centre Route (there’s also a Cloverdale Route).
