37th Annual Powell Street Festival
August 3, 2013 @ 11:30 am - August 4, 2013 @ 7:00 pm
Celebrating Japanese Canadian Art, Culture and Heritage.
August 3 & 4, 2013
The Powell Street Festival is an annual celebration of Japanese Canadian arts, culture and heritage that features something for everyone: dance, music, film and video, visual arts, martial arts demos, amateur sumo tournament, craft vendors, traditional displays, and of course, tons of scrumptious Japanese food.
PSF is the largest event of its kind in Canada and the longest running community arts festival in the Lower Mainland. We provide a much-needed venue for emerging and established, professional and amateur, and traditional and contemporary artists in the Japanese Canadian and Asian Canadian communities.
