The team at Base31 is taking time to thank you for a history-breaking first year at Base31.
Over the past year, so many incredible moments, happenings and learnings have happened at Base31.
We have had four seasons of concerts, renovations, connection, art, and most of all a growing community of people who care about what we’re doing here. These are just some of the things that have made this year one for the books. We thank everyone who has been a part of this journey as we create a destination together – our amazing tenants, community collaborators and partners, dedicated vendors, suppliers, supporters and all others who helped Base31 come to life.
In particular, we’d like to thank you – the County community – for welcoming us with open arms, showing up to collaborate, giving helpful feedback, and bringing incredible energy to all the events we had onsite. It truly takes a village.
In honour of a wild first 12 months in business, we want to take you back to some of our favourite moments.
May 2022: Base31 had its first community celebration at the Co-Creation Kick-Off, where the official name of the 70-acre site was unveiled.
June 2022: The first flora was planted in the Aviators Garden, paving the way for an immersive space filled with native species and surrounded by public art.
July 2022: The first weekend of July brought the launch of our Historical Walking Tours with resident expert Jacqui Burley. The Drill Hall opened in July and Sarah Harmer was the first act to take the stage. Hundreds of people perused the site for the Base31 Community Open House. This month featured creative placemaking highlights including the unveilings of the Natures Aviators submissions and Contentment.
