One Day Community Picnic
September 10 2022 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm PDT
One Day is a family & community event that takes place each September as Victoria’s “Kick Off to Community Living Month.”
One Day is a community event organized by community organizations that work with children, youth and adults with intellectual disabilities. The purpose of One Day is to celebrate the diversity in our community through the planning of a free, family-oriented celebration of everyone – for everyone – in our community. Our planning committee works hard to encourage the community at large to attend in the hope that through celebrating our similarities, we can break down the barriers that often result in social isolation for some. One Day provides free musical entertainment, BBQ lunch and refreshments, organized games and activities that anyone can participate in, FREE children’s activities, bouncies, face painting, prizes and special guests. We also provide a Village Market where crafts people and artists, some of whom have a disability, can sell their wares. In 2015, 1,000 community members attended One Day.
This 11th One Day will look a little bit different than past events due to changes being implemented that support COVID-19 health and safety for everyone, but attendees can expect our usual stage packed full of performers and music, special guests, children’s activities, community, and fun!
