About the Langara Gala

The Langara Gala was a talent show with performances by Langara employees that ran almost annually between 1987 and 2014. The event was a magical night that built community and enriched life at the college through the camaraderie it generated. It was held in Studio 58 with volunteer production expertise from faculty, staff and students in Theatre Arts. In addition to fostering camaraderie, the event generated more than $33,000 in contributions toward student financial assistance.

Many of the performers from those events have retired. LCAR members valued the experience and continued the gala tradition by hosting similar events featuring performances by retirees in the years 2017 through 2019, and in 2023. Those events raised over $4,200 which was matched and directed to Studio 58 by the Langara College Foundation.

Again, this year we are reaching out to the broader Langara community in the hope you will join us for this most entertaining evening that supports a great cause.
