Festival Description

The neighborhood festival offers an intimate alternative to some of the mob-scene festivals. The family-friendly events take place in a Vancouver neighborhood where homeowners open their yards and living rooms to audiences for performance — puppet shows, dancers, musicians, performance and street arts. The lively but down to earth festival is where community and neighbors meet and greet guests into their intimate spaces for a celebration of the arts.

Festival Dates June 7 - 9, 2013
