DH Vancouver Staff Apr 07, 2015 9:35 am

Metro Vancouver is home to two large Vaisakhi Parades to choose from, including the Vancouver Vaisakhi Parade happening on April 11, 2015. It will be a day that marks both the New Year and the anniversary of one of Sikhism’s most important events, the establishment of Khalsa in 1699.

The parade attracts around 100,000 spectators, and is one of the largest parades held in the City of Vancouver outside the downtown core.

One of the aspects of the parade that attracts people from every culture is the celebration of Sikh cuisine and other foods. There will be free food (samosas, sweets, pizza, subs and more) that can be found along the most of the parade route.
