Thank You from the 38th Annual Powell Street Festival!
We wish to extend a huge thanks to all the artists, volunteers, vendors, sponsors, donors, and attendees who made this year's block party possible and a huge success! This year we saw a vast array of traditional and emerging performing artists from all over North America and Japan join in the celebration with everything people have come to love about The Powell Street Festival including live music, dance performance, martial arts, sumo tournament, crafts and much more! Our expanded food vendors were a huge success and it was great to see so much support from the local community and beyond with both returning familiar faces and many new ones coming to join in our celebration of Japanese Canadian arts, culture and heritage.
We invite you to share your memories on social media using #powellstreetfestival and to visit ours to enjoy some of the highlights from this year at @powellstfest on facebook, twitter and instagram. If you bought a lottery ticket, please check our website to see if you won a prize. Your support keeps the festival going, year after year, and is appreciated now more than ever.
