Event Details


Join us in celebration of Powell Street Festival’s 35th Anniversary! 


Vancouver’s oldest community-based festival, Powell Street Festival is celebrating its anniversary on June 15 at Performance Works in Granville Island. 

In 1977, the first Powell Street Festival was held in Oppenheimer Park on Powell Street, in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, which was once the city’s Japantown. Since then, the Festival has continued annually through the perseverance and support of tons of volunteers and long-term community supporters. To stay strong and innovative for another 35 years, we are hosting “KANPAI!” (cheers!), a fundraiser featuring square dancing with Shout! White Dragon, MC-ing and songs by Jay Kin, a live and silent auction, cash bar and Japanese appetizers. No dancing experience required!

Art and other live and silent auction items can be previewed in late-May on our website at www.powellstreetfestival.com or our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/powellstfest

Here is a sneak peak of some our silent auction items:

  • Set of 20 Shopping Cart prints by Taizo Yamamoto
  • Six month unlimited pass to YYoga ($800 value) 
  • Package of 5 premium sake bottles selected by The Association of Pure Sake Promoters of Japan ($250 value)
  • Nintendo DSi with Mario & Luigi Bowser's inside story game by Nintendo of Canada Ltd. ($200 value)
  • Passes to Vancouver’s most exciting events and festivals 

To purchase tickets, credit card payment is accepted through Eventbrite. If you would like to pay by cash or cheque, please contact Kazuho by phone at 604-739-9388 or email at production@powellstreetfestival.com

Tickets are also available at the door. 10% of ticket sales will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross via the Canadian Red Cross.
