Let’s get together! On September 17, join the community celebration and get to know your neighbours with the annual Neighbours Day.

Each year, Neighbours Day brings residents together for a day of community building, connection, and raising awareness of the Town’s Neighbourhood Connect project. A kick off event will be hosted in Shikaoi Park to start the day off with free family-friendly activities and entertainment. Residents are also encouraged to host their own neighbourhood events to spark new connections and foster community building around Stony Plain. Neighbours Day festivities are free and provide guests with an opportunity to meet their neighbours, learn about the role of Neighbourhood Connectors in the community, and register as a volunteer.

“Stony Plain is a growing community and staying connected has never been more important. Through events such as Neighbours Day, we can welcome new residents, reconnect with long-time community members, and foster the Stony Plain neighbourly spirit. I encourage everyone to stop by and say hello!” says Mayor William Choy.

“As friendships grow, so do safe and caring communities. Neighbours Day is all about building a stronger, more connected, and more resilient community where all residents feel safe and supported,” says Community Development Officer Deanna Butz. “If you are someone who is interested in playing a more active role in the community, stop by and register to become a Neighbourhood Connector!”

Neighbours Day will kick off at 10AM with light refreshments, live performances, and family-friendly entertainment in Shikaoi Park. New to this year’s celebration, a special ceremony will recognize Neighbourhood Connectors who continue to make a difference in their community. Volunteers receiving recognition will be notified in advance and will receive certification from Mayor Choy at the celebration.

Online resources are available for residents looking to plan an event in their neighbourhood. Visit the Stony Plain website to learn more about Neighbours Day and get involved in the Neighbourhood Connect project.
