Launched on mid of June 2021, “Let’s Go Do Something” is Tourism Abbotsford’s summer campaign that aimed to raise awareness of all that the city has to offer, from local wineries and breweries to outdoor adventures and family fun.
According to Tourism Abbotsford, the “Let’s Go Do Something” campaign invites visitors from across British Columbia (BC) to experience Abbotsford’s ever-changing handmade and homegrown experiences, where farm meets table, spirit meets nature, and travellers meet the cultivated city.
After 15 months of dwindling activity, Tourism Abbotsford believes in the potential for a solid summer. With the end of the pandemic appearing to be within sight and vaccination rates increasing, Tourism Abbotsford has a simple message to visitors and locals: Let’s go do something.
