For nearly two decades, Douglas Smith has been instrumental in the creation, launch and successful management of many major events in B.C. In various management positions, Mr. Smith helped develop events in both the public and private sector.

Most recently, the Blue Coast team has been chosen as producer of the City of Victoria’s Canada Day celebrations. Douglas also helped build Surrey’s Canada Day into one of the largest celebrations in the country.

Other production credits include the launch of the Khatsahlano Street Party on West 4th Avenue in Vancouver; TD Uptown Live in New Westminster; TD Concerts at the Pier, Taste White Rock and the Vitality Health & Wellness Expo in White Rock; and Parksville Uncorked Wine & Food Festival and Cinema Under the Stars in Parksville, B.C.

We have worked closely with Douglas and his team for close to a decade and we have watched the growth and success of Uptown Live first-hand. The event has become such a big part of New Westminster and we are delighted we can help sustain such an important community festival.
