Held the first weekend of June each year, Turner Valley’s Discovery Days offers fun for the whole family. After the Diamond Valley Parade in Black Diamond, head over to Millennium Park, centrally-located in Turner Valley’s downtown district, to experience a cuddly critters petting zoo, children’s bounce houses, face painters, an antique car show, and an artisan market.
These feature events, happening on Saturday, June 3 in 2017, are complemented by a variety of community activities and our region’s destination shops and restaurants.
Make It. Bake It. Grow It. Sell It.
Local artisans who produce their own goods in the area, and regional non-profit organizations dedicated to supporting the community, are invited to participate in the annual market. Please apply via the Discovery Days Market Application. Deadline for applications is Friday, May 19.
Turner Valley’s Discovery Days would not be possible without the support of volunteers! Volunteers must be over the age of 14 and must commit to attending an orientation prior to the event.
Volunteers support the event by:
- Monitoring bounce houses and ensuring the number of children does not exceed the recommended limit for their safety;
- Welcoming event attendees and providing directions to event attendees;
- Circulating to support other volunteers, staff and visitors as necessary.
Please complete and submit a Volunteer Application Form if you are able to help out on the day of the event.
Turner Valley’s Discovery Days offers opportunities for your organization to get involved through sponsorship. Contact Hazel Martin for more details.
Greening the Event
Each year the Town endeavours to make community events greener. Vendors are encouraged to use, wherever possible, locally-sourced suppliers and recyclable or biodegradable materials. Please remember to sort any waste into the proper bins – recyclables, compost or landfill waste. Attendees are reminded to bring reusable bags, and refillable water bottles to make use of water stations that will be stationed at the event.
