May Roundup

Posted on : Tuesday, June 01, 2021


As May has now come to a close, we’d like to take a moment and reflect on some of last month’s brightest moments!

May kicked off with the Mother’s Day Small Business Boxes that were curated by many of Downtown’s businesses. Thank you to all the participating businesses who made this initiative possible and spread the encouragement to support local for Mother’ Day.

May also brought the 8th annual History & Beer Tour through a virtual viewing method. Those who joined us for this event were able to enjoy premium selected beers from the comfort of their homes, while taking a virtual tour of some of Downtown’s most historic sites. Thank you to our beer providers for this year’s event: Andrew Hilton Wine and Spirits, Dylan’s Burger & Deli, and Sister’s Pub & Grill! We would also like to thank our beer connoisseurs, George and Roy, and our favourite historian, Belinda!

On May 19th, The BRZ Marketing & Engagement Team released the first “Dive Into Downtown” video of the summer. Following this release, there will be a new segment of this series released every Wednesday of the summer! These videos aim to shine the spotlight on the unique businesses in our Downtown area through the voices of their amazing owners and staff. Stay tuned for the new Dive Into Downtown video every Wednesday!

The LOVED vintage and secondhand sale took place during May, hosted by Hawk and Harvest at the Heart Space Yoga Studio & Solstice Juice Co. This event provided a platform for local vendors and creators to share their products and engage with others!

In May, the Downtown Lethbridge “Pop up Park” project was approved and will be an exciting initiative that will provide an inclusive public space for varying events and celebrations to take place. This project will be mobile, alternating between different locations in the Downtown area. More details to follow on the Pop up Park, stay tuned!

May additionally welcomed SIX08 Health to their beautiful new building! Make sure to stop by and visit them at 698 5th Ave S!
