The Burnaby Festival of Learning, May 1-7, 2016, is a week-long celebration with 50+ free events to engage children, families, young adults and seniors alike.

It all kicks off on Sunday, May 1, from 10 am to 3 pm with the City of Burnaby’s Rhodofest at Deer Lake Park (6450 Deer Lake Ave). It will finish up on Saturday, May 7 from 11 am – 3 pm at SFU’s Science Rendezvous on the Burnaby campus (8888 University Drive).
