A collaborative 2-day event open to the public with local builders, using local wood, building live on location at Van Urban Timber with final projects being donated to the Squamish community.
At its core, Builders Fest revolves around giving back to our community. Achieving this would not be possible without the help and support of our trusted local builders.
During the weekend, visitors can watch these builders as they complete curated projects to fit the specific needs of our community partners.
Education is an essential pillar of Builders Fest. The weekend will highlight BC's most prolific industries' past, present, and future.
Visitors can walk through a pop-up museum presented by Sea-To-Sky Forestry Society Centre, converse and learn from local builders, and listen in on keynote speakers.
Builders Fest is an opportunity to share the connection between our trees, the lumber derived, and the constructors who shape the lumber to be a part of our homes and public structures.
We will conclude our weekend of wood by delivering the constructed projects to our Squamish community partners.
Vendor Village is a place for local businesses to set up shop and display what they have going on.
Visitors can buy raffle tickets for a chance to win a wood slab!
All proceeds from the raffle will be donated back to our community partners.
Enjoy a meal from a food truck and visit our beer garden!
