Passport to Patios Campaign Supports Local Hospitality Sector


To support the hospitality sector in Abbotsford, the City is launching a new campaign called Passport to Patios.  This campaign will encourage residents to get out and "Sit. Sip. Socialize!" while supporting local businesses this summer.

From June to August, every $10 spent at one of our local Abbotsford participating businesses will receive a "Passport to Patios" stamp. Once five stamps have been accumulated in the passport, they can be submitted through the City’s online form, for a chance to win one of two weekly prizes (valued at $50/each). 

The Passport to Patios campaign includes a virtual experience where participants can use a GIS mapping tool to help map out your destination. 

This campaign runs from June 1st to August 31st and is being organized in accordance with COVID-19 recommendations set by the Provincial Health Officer. 

Contest Details: 
  1. Download your Passport online or pick up a copy from one of our participating businesses. 
  2. Visit one of the participating Passport to Patio businesses and spend a minimum of $10.00 (per visit).
  3. Ask the participating business to validate your "Passport" with a sticker. There is no need to keep your receipt.
  4. One sticker per visit.
  5. Collect five stamps from participating patios. You can visit the same business again five days in a row; each time making a minimum purchase of $10.00.
  6. Submit your completed Passport - Take a picture, photocopy or scan your completed "Passport" and upload it using the online form. You will be entered into the weekly prize draw.
