About Chinatown Festival
This August, the Vancouver Chinatown BIA society will once again host the incredible TD Vancouver Chinatown Festival in the neighborhood (10th &11th August, 2013, at Columbia & Keefer Street).
Last year, about 60,000 festival goers converged on the streets of Columbia and Keefer in historic Chinatown to experience the biggest multicultural summer celebration in town. Festival activities included day market, “Historical & Food Tasting Walking tour”, Kids corner, multicultural stage performances, Cultural Corner, TD Youth Talent Showdown, Young Star Challenge, theme related activities and Streetfest.
With this year’s slogan “Discover Chinatown. Explore the World”, we will have more elements and innovative new programs into the festival!
Dress up as your favorite anime/manga/comic/game character and strut your stuff for fun and prizes! We’ll have everything from Japanese Schoolgirls to Robots to Superheroes! The only limit is your imagination! Even if you don’t have a costume, feel free to come down to cheer for your favorites and take plenty of pictures!
The sakura (Japanese cherry blossom) has long been a traditional icon in Japanese culture and is a symbol of spring. In 2008, the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival (VCBF) started the Sakura Days event. In 2009, several of Vancouver’s leading Japan-Canada business associations formed the Japan Fair Organizing Committee and joined forces with the VCBF to create a unique Japanese-Canadian festival event. At Sakura Days Japan Fair you can experience modern and traditional Japanese cultural arts, cuisine and business.
StreetFest is an annual night festival on the streets of the historic Vancouver Chinatown, full of performances and fun! There will be dancing, food, and tonnes more to do for the young and the ‘young at heart’.
This year Chinatown Festival is working in conjuction with Anime Revolution and A Star Studio to bring you a night of diverse entertainment. From Cosplayers and artists, to Bboys and a live band, we have it all. So make your way to the Vancouver Chinatown Streetfest on August 11th (6pm-10pm) at the corner of Keefer and Columbia for a night to remember!
Anime Revolution’s Cosplay Fashion Team was met with such enthusiasm and excitement that we’ve been asked back for an encore performance! So get ready to enjoy another FREE performance where cosplayers will once again take the night!
Location: Summer Night Market (Close to IKEA in Richmond) Date: July 13th, 2012 Time: 9pm-11pm
