North Nanaimo Pumpkin Patch

Every year we host the North Nanaimo Pumpkin Patch at Daynes Park in the North End of Nanaimo, as a fundraising event full of family fun for the whole community.  After a couple year hiatus, the pumpkins were back this year and the turn-out was the best ever! 

The Erica Murphy Athletic Bursary at VIU is the reason this whole event began.

Our friend Erica was an incredible athlete and coach to many up and coming athletes. She helped facilitate the road to post secondary education and competitive sport for many future stars. In March of 2008, Erica lost her courageous and long fought battle with breast cancer. Today, we continue to keep her legacy alive through events like this one with support from former players, teammates and the community who knew & loved her!


Thank you for your amazing support year after year,  We couldn't do this without the support of our community and we can't wait to see you in 2023 for the 15th Annual North Nanaimo Pumpkin Patch!
