[Vancouver Event] Country Celebration @ Campbell Valley Regional Park

Country Celebration is an annual event held at Campbell Valley Regional Park in early September. In 2018, it was on September 8th and 9th. We visited the place on the 9th in the rainy weather and saw a lot of lovely farm animals!

Campbell Valley Regional Park is located in South Langley and close to US border. Google Map said that it would take 40 minutes to get there from Coquitlam, but I think I drove about an hour. This time, we only spent time at the Celebration and did not hike in the park.

The Animals

My main goal was to see farm animals. I haven’t been to zoos or farms for a very long time and missed seeing them a lot. The Celebration featured a variety of farm animals, and that was why I still came in a bad weather.

There was a market with about two dozen vendors selling fruits, veggies, and other goods. One of the vendors had llamas sitting with them (see the picture above). Both the adult llama and the baby were so cute! They quietly sat there the whole time.

The sheep were located near the entrance. There was a show going on with them but I missed it.

Many animals were near big red farmstead, including rabbits, chickens, a cattle, and two sheep (?).

I couldn’t tell if they are sheep or goats. They looked like goats to me as they didn’t have long hairs.

There were more kinds of chickens and ducks in cages inside the farmstead. There were even 3 Canadian Geese (not in photos) in one of the cages, which I found weird.

Farm Equipment

There were also old and new farm tools and equipment on display. I wasn’t really paying attention when viewing them because I loved animals more, but it was worth checking them out. The below two photos show the tools from the old times.

Conclusion

It was a fabulous experience to see a lot of animals in this celebration. It was also a family-friendly event for kids to experience new things. I highly recommend this event to everyone!
