Dance artistry from around the world

The Vancouver Arts & Music Festival returns to Esther Short Park (W. 8th and Columbia streets) and downtown Vancouver August 2-4. Free and open to all ages, Vancouver Arts & Music Festival features award-winning musicians, visual artists and performers from Vancouver, the region and around the world.

The three-day event hosts three stages, juried art shows, pop-up galleries, dance performances, family activities, food vendors and three concerts by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra USA (VSO). Hands-on educational activities invite all ages and abilities to learn, explore and experience the joy of connecting with the arts.

There are daily activities for festival goers of all ages including vendor booths, art demonstrations and an interactive art piece from muralist Sarah Hunter that will be painted live by the community during the festival. Children will love the caricature artists, doodle walls, roaming entertainers, face painting, balloon art and lawn games set up throughout the festival grounds. Find a masterpiece to take home at the juried art shows on display in the Artists Alley next to City Hall and at the Vancouver Hilton. Learn more and view the full lineup at or follow the festival on Instagram at @vancouverartsmusicfest.
