Co-presented by SFU’s Office of Community Engagement and the City of Burnaby

Co-presented by Simon Fraser University and the City of Burnaby, in participation with many local Burnaby organizations, Connect Fest is a week-long series of free events, featuring performances, lectures, discussions, tours, and more, all designed to inform, engage, and spark creative conversations among Burnaby’s vibrant and diverse audiences.

At Connect Fest, we think of community engagement as an inclusive form of knowledge-making and knowledge-sharing characterized by respect and reciprocity. This doesn’t only happen at Connect Fest—the City of Burnaby welcomes your ideas and input all year round.
