The long-awaited return of the Granville Promenade is back, and with it – an outdoor summer fest series in Vancouver’s “Entertainment District.”
What started as a pilot program last year has become a celebrated summer festival, closing down the stretch of Granville Street between Smithe and Helmcken to traffic and opening it up to folks around the city.
We’re thrilled to officially announce the triumphant return of the #GranvilleProm 🥳 This year’s outdoor festival will take place every Sat & Sun in August from 1 PM – 7 PM between Smithe & Helmcken streets… it’s going to be bigger and better than ever!

In addition to being ambassadors for downtown safety and cleanliness, the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association (DVBIA) strives to create a greater sense of community & continuously improve the downtown core experience.
Examples of past and ongoing events this season include an outdoor movie series, a farmer’s market, and even a roller disco at Robson Square. This year? You can expect even more live music, street entertainment, pop-up patios, and art than last year!
Plus, The Vancouver Mural Festival will take over the promenade on Sunday, August 14th for their VMF Street Party.
