Celebrate Blackburn’s community spirit!
The Blackburn FUNFAIR is an annual celebration of community spirit in the first weekend of June.
In operation since 1971 the Blackburn FUNFAIR has always been a community icon. Starting out at Glen Ogilvy School grounds in the early years then moving to the park adjacent to Emily Carr Middle School then making it’s way to 190 Glen Park the fair has survived many changes, storms and other influences but has always come through as a Community Celebration Day for Blackburn Hamlet.
And thanks to our volunteers, local businesses, and fabulous community, the Blackburn Funfair will return!

Come for a visit – you’ll be glad you did!
