    Cordova Bay Day 2017

    The 14th annual Cordova Bay Day, held on Saturday, June 24th, 2017 was a wonderful community event with well over 2,000 attendees having an enjoyable time on a sunny and pleasant summer day. This year’s event was held at St. David by the Sea Anglican Church, with activities also happening at the Cordova Bay Plaza, Mattick’s Farm and Cordova Bay Golf Course.

    At St. David by the Sea Anglican Church, there was a market-place of local vendors and businesses, crafts, information displays from Saanich Fire, Saanich Police and several other organizations, live music by the band “And Then There Was”, baked goods from the Cordova Bay Pre-School, BBQ hot dogs and baked goods by the Victoria German School, free popcorn, and kids entertainment (inflatable dolphin, face painting and balloon twisting).

    At The Plaza, there was a Scotia Bank fundraising BBQ, a British and Classic car show, a vintage Saanich police car and a modern Saanich fire truck. 

    Mattick’s Farm featured mini-golf, live music, art exhibitions, and a sidewalk sale.

    The Cordova Bay Golf Course featured live music, free golf tips at the driving range, restaurant, bar and snack shop.

    A number of Cordova Bay residents signed up as new members of the Association at our membership tables at The Plaza and St. David’s.

    It was great to see so many Cordova Bay residents, as well as visitors from other communities in the Capital Region District, at our community celebration.
