8:30 AM to 2:00 PM

This is the 26th anniversary of the South End Community Association’s Annual Miner’s Heritage Picnic, a free family event, with food, fun, and music all day long.


The picnic begins with the Charles Torhjelm pancake breakfast at 8:30 am, followed by a First Nations prayer and speakers at 11 am, and a Heritage Walk around the historic South End neighbourhood at 11:10 am.


The ever-popular pet parade, named Signy’s Pet Parade in memory of South End resident Signy Gauer, will be held at 1 pm just before the Laura Ramsay Memorial Tea at 2 pm.


And while these are going on, there’s live music and entertainment, art, painting and crafts, pony rides and a petting farm, a climbing wall, miniature train ride, bouncy castle, face-painting and more!


SECA will be having some fund-raising activities to help cover costs for the picnic with a silent auction, a raffle with fine dining as the prize, and the sale of hotdogs and drinks, as well as popcorn and SECA’s one-of-a-kind T-shirts and aprons.


The Miner’s Heritage Picnic is supported by SECA and local businesses, and is one of the city’s most popular summer-time events. This year’s picnic represents more than a quarter-century of summer family fun in the South End.
