From ADBA. Everyone is welcome at this weekend’s 32nd Annual Berry Festival. Cover Photo by Win Wachsmann Let the fun and festivities of summer begin with the 33rd Annual Berrybeat Festival in Historic Downtown Abbotsford. Music, dancing, food and fun will be had by all. Bring the family down to Montrose and Essendene Avenue July 5 (9am-8pm) July 6 (9am – 4pm) Legal Grounds Coffee House will host this year’s Annual Pancake Breakfast. For a minimal cost, you can enjoy a delicious strawberry pancake breakfast on Saturday July 5th at Legal Grounds Coffee House on Montrose Avenue from 8am – 10am. We’re excited to announce many changes to the Berrybeat Festival this year. One of which is the addition of 2 new stages to the event. With the help of Atangard Community Project and CIVL Radio, we have added a mostly acoustic stage at Mac & Mango’s patio on Montrose Avenue, and a stage at the platform in the parking lot by the RDM building at the corner of Pauline St and Essendene Ave (the old Liquidation World.) We will still be having the main stage, at the corner of Essendene and West Railway. It is thanks to our amazing Platinum Sponsor, Aldergrove Credit Union, that we are able to give our community such a fantastic lineup at the 33rd Annual Berrybeat Festival on July 5th & 6th! This year the show will include (but is subject to changes):

Gary Savard, the Amazing Magician and his Coco Vancouver International Buskers will be performing non stop on Montrose Avenue both Saturday and Sunday.
