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 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.
