The inaugural Vancouver USA Arts & Music Festival comes to Esther Short Park (W. 8th & Columbia streets) and downtown Vancouver. Free and open to all ages, the festival invites community members and visitors to experience three days of exciting music, art, dance, food and fun in downtown Vancouver.
Three outdoor stages will host more than 30 live music and dance performances, from jazz to alt rock, and African beats to Ukrainian pop. Regional and national art shows will be on display with works available for purchase during the festival.
The Vancouver USA Arts & Music Festival features daily activities for attendees of all ages including interactive mural painting, vendor booths and art demonstrations in glass blowing, ceramics, calligraphy and more. Children will love the instrument petting zoo, caricature artists, doodle walls, roaming entertainers, face painting, balloon art and lawn games set up across the festival grounds.
