We at the Kerrisdale Business Association were shocked and saddened to learn of the serious fire in our Village near West 41st & Maple Street last night.
To all those impacted we send our concerned thoughts and best wishes for a speedy reconstruction. We would also like to commend the swift reaction of Vancouver’s finest Fire Fighters and the VPD for all they did to divert traffic and subdue the flames thereby preventing the spread of the conflagration.
We’ll keep you posted.

The sun shone on Kerrisdale Village for our annual Kerrisdale Days event September 12 with a wonderful crowd of folks turning out. One of the showcased events of the day is the annual Kerrisdale Idol Contest. Thirty hopefuls ranging in age from 5 to 85 participated in this year’s songfest and it was a banner one for top talent. In the end, young Connor Nelson, a native of Surrey, won over the judges and took home the $1000 first prize.
