to the heart of Fort Langley
The Fort Langley Community Hall is located in the centre of the village. The iconic historic building has been standing proudly welcoming community and visitors to the Birthplace of BC since 1931. The building is lovingly managed and maintained by the Fort Langley Community Improvement Society, a registered charity incorporated in 1924. The volunteer Board of Directors work in partnership with local organizations to organize and promote educational and cultural events for the benefit of the community as a whole and provide scholarships for graduating students in the Langley Township.
To this day, the Fort Langley Community Hall remains the heart of the community, hosting events from community meetings to markets and festivals.

The first May Day was held in Fort Langley in 1922 and has been an annual tradition in Langley Township celebrating the May Day’s 100 year in 2022. From 1923 to 1957 the May Day celebrations were organized by the Kinsmen and moved to Langley Prairie. In 1958 the annual event moved back to Fort Langley and was organized by the Fort Langley Community Improvement Society & Lions Club.
We shall forever owe a great deal of gratitude to the original directors of the Fort Langley Community Improvement Society and the Fort Langley Women’s Institute. A plaque in memory of their contributions to our community is cemented into the pavement at the front entrance to the Fort Langley Community Hall.
The words of Rudyard Kipling were quoted in a hall report in 1953 and may still be quoted as essential to the success of this momentous project:
The everlasting teamwork of every bloomin’ soul.
