Festivals & Events

Kimberley is a city with a playful spirit – and we like to celebrate all the great ways to play here! You’re invited to join in our many unique community events, whether you’re a local for a lifetime, a day, or somewhere in between. A few of our annual events are listed below.

Get up close and personal with the City's Public Works Professionals and the vehicles and equipment they use every day!  Enjoy this free event including demonstrations, displays and a free lunch, too. Public Works Day is celebrated every year usually on the 3rd Wednesday in May.  Whenever possible, tours to the Mark Creek Dam are also offered during Public Works Day. Contact Operations & Environment Services for more details at 250.427.9660.
