New regulations mean the return of some of our city’s favorite festivals and events. One of those festivals just so happens to be the Powell St Fest, Vancouver’s ultimate celebration of Japanese Canadian art and culture. Ready to see how it’s going down this year? Keep on reading.
As you might have guessed, the 45th annual Powell St Fest will look a little different than years past. The main difference this year is that the festival is happening both online and with live events. For the most part, the website will be your main hub for arts and events. Some of the in-person events include things like a guided 360 Riot Walk tour, the poetry/music installation at the Vancouver Japanese Language School, and more.
🎊Announcing the 45th Powell Street Festival! A celebration of Japanese Canadian art and culture through on-demand creative works, DIY workshops, community-building activities, and a depot to pick up your handmade arts, crafts and cuisine.
