Message from the Mayor

“Last year, more than 20,000 people enjoyed Port Moody’s first-ever Car-Free Day, and more than 100 vendors participated. This event provides a great opportunity for local business owners and artisans to connect with Port Moody residents and visitors from around the Lower Mainland. I invite members of the public to save the date on their calendar, and encourage local businesses to be a part of this great event by reserving a booth today.”
