A small Vancouver version of Japan’s Matsuri festival takes place in the city’s Japanese quarter

Influenced by the Japanese grand event and typical Japanese summer festivals, the Powell Street Festival is held in the paueru gai neighborhood, Vancouver’s historic Canadian neighborhood.

This year, the two-day festival takes place on July 30 and 31 from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. around Powell Street, with food trucks, arts and festivities to celebrate and recognize the city’s Japanese community.

Many cultural exhibitions, demonstrations and activities will take place, including martial arts demonstrations and an amateur sumo tournament. There will also be arts in various mediums such as dance, music and film, as well as walking tours of the historic district.

A market and food stalls serving Japanese dishes, with food trucks anchored near the end of the road, will line Alexander and Jackson streets, with a stage at the intersection. A main stage will be set up along with other activities at Oppenheimer Park which will be the center of the festival, with tents, booths, demonstration areas and more.
