West Broadway, between MacDonald and Blenheim
Greek Day on West Broadway is the largest one-day Greek festival in Vancouver and the grand finale event in a month long Greek Heritage Festival. A five block stretch on Broadway measuring almost one kilometre, from McDonald to Blenheim, is closed off to traffic to make room for a world of delicious Greek food and drink, market vendors, entertainment, and live music offering a laid back, yet lively Greek atmosphere.
Stong’s Market is sponsoring the Cooking Demo stage featuring the Greek Sisters who will be making five different recipes throughout the day.
Our Community Crew will also be set up with our Stong’s Market tent interacting with festival guests giving them a chance to enter to win a $250 Stong’s Market gift card, plus pick up a complimentary Stong’s Market water and temporary tattoos for the kids! We hope to see you there.

Stong’s believes in being a good neighbour. Our support of local communities and charities dates back to the first store opened by Carson Stong in 1931.
Mr. Stong’s generosity and leadership have served as the foundation of Stong’s commitment to the community. That involvement has earned us a reputation of being more than just the local grocer. Stong’s proudly supports our local community focusing on our Children’s Schools, Educational & Sports Programs as well as our local Community Organizations & Festivals, through the donation of products and services for fundraising events.
Online School Rebate Program
For all parents/faculty that spend money online at express.stongs.com, Stong’s can donate 4% of the orders back to the PAC. The more parents that participate, the higher the revenue will be generated for the school. I.e. For every $1000 spent, $40 will be donated to the PAC. Just choose your school during the checkout process and we will take care of the rest!
Stong’s Market is providing an exciting opportunity for parents to raise money for their children’s school through their weekly grocery purchases. We at Stong’s feel confident that this is an excellent opportunity to raise much needed funds for the school and ultimately our children.
