Here, there will be opportunities to express your support for Powell Street Festival in its 44th year.

Tune in to the Powell Street website with your family and friends to experience the spirit of the festival right from your home!

The program features taiko drumming from the rooftop of the Vancouver Japanese Language School and a Giving Ceremony to honour our connection to the Powell Street neighbourhood.

There will also be a physical-distance-respecting Paueru Mashup dance and performances from several local Japanese Canadian artists.

Interspersed throughout the day, organizers are bringing the festival’s sounds, excitement and sumo to you through “Spirit of Nihonmachi,” a 35th Powell Street Festival anniversary film by Greg Masuda.

Other events coming to Vancouver soon including the Roller Disco Brunch.
