MCBURNEY PLAZA SUMMER SERIES

2018 Festival Schedule

The McBurney Plaza Summer Series was launched by the Downtown Langley Business Association and the City of Langley in 2015. Over the last few years attendees have had the opportunity to experience circus acts, science fun, Jedi battles and more! We’ve hosted DIY experts, local artists, Juno nominated musicians and performing artists from around the world. This engaging series invites attendees to join together for a memorable experience in the heart of the City of Langley, McBurney Plaza. 

We are grateful for the feedback we have received from our happy attendees over the years, and as a result, this year you will see some exciting changes to the McBurney Plaza Summer Series. Mark your calendars as this year the McBurney Plaza Summer Series will bring three afternoon, family friendly events and two evening adult only events to McBurney Plaza.  For more information around this change, please refer to the FAQ section below.

McBurney Plaza Summer Series

FAQs 

What is the McBurney Plaza Summer Series?
It is a series of 5 events that run during the summer months in Downtown Langley.  This series is presented by the Downtown Langley Business Association and the City of Langley. 

What is new for 2018?
This year, the McBurney Plaza Summer Series will include three afternoon, family friendly events and 2 evening, adult only events.  

Why are there 3 afternoon events and 2 evening events this year? 
While we have reduced the afternoon events to 3, we have added 2 evening events into this event series. After the wildly successful ‘Dueling Pianos in the Plaza’ event last fall, we have heard from an overwhelming number of attendees and local business owners that wanted to see more balance between family friendly community events and adult focused community events in the City of Langley. 

Will the afternoon events be the same as last year?
This event series has a track record of providing an interactive, memorable experience to attendees. The afternoon events will continue to be free, family friendly events full of high caliber entertainment.  

Do I need a ticket to attend the afternoon events?
No.  All afternoon events are family friendly and free to attend. 

Why are tickets required for the evening events?
As the evening events are 19+ events, we create a closed event by fencing off the event area.  To ensure we stay within the required capacity for this enclosed event space, we require attendees to purchase a ticket. Thanks to our sponsors (including presenting sponsors - the Downtown Langley Business Association and the City of Langley) we are able to set our ticket price at just $10, and a portion of ticket proceeds is donated to a local charity.
