It’s been thirty six years since the inaugural Powell Street Festival, and in that time it has grown from a small community event to a full-blown arts and culture celebration. This is the largest event of its kind in Canada and the longest running community arts festival in the Lower Mainland. It is a place for emerging and established, professional and amateur, and traditional and contemporary artists in the Japanese Canadian and Asian Canadian communities.
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 Japanese food.
The theme for the 36th annual Powell Street Festival is BIG BANG-ZAI!
