the story

We are opening up the three iconic Flamingo venues located in Whalley (Surrey) with a plan for a full schedule of live performances as well as private events such as private parties, fundraisers and casino nights.   In addition to working towards our mission of bringing the best shows to small communities, we will be making a difference in this underserved community by providing opportunities to artists and concert support workers that will improve the neighborhood through arts and culture, and stimulate local business by bringing in fans and groups from across the Lower Mainland.

David Geertz and the Penmar Community Arts Society have partnered with the Flamingo property owner and developer Charan Sethi of Tien Shier,to help create an arts and culture hub at the Flamingo, which is located in the 108 block of King George Boulevard in Surrey, BC.

Eventually, residential towers will be built on the hotel site, but plans are to make the current licensed establishments go-to destinations over the next five or six years, until the buildings are demolished.

The three rooms at the Flamingo site - which hold between 100-250 each - are also available to local community groups and non profits.  A permanent casino set up in one of the rooms which is bookable for fundraisers and private events.

Read about all three bookable, licensed rooms on our VENUES PAGE.

In addition to the three event spaces - each of which contains a performance stage, dance floor and sound and light systems - there is a liquor store on site which will be opened up and run as a social enterprise to help fund local music and community development.  Read about the LIQUOR ORDER AND DELIVERY PROGRAM.
