The Powell Street Festival Society is dedicated to cultivating and celebrating Japanese Canadian arts and culture! Our main focus is the production of the Powell Street Festival (PSF), now in its 39th year. It is the largest event of its kind in Canada and the longest running festival in Metro Vancouver.
The PSF includes musical performances, traditional dance, an amateur sumo wrestling competition, martial arts demonstrations, bonsai and ikebana exhibits, lots of Japanese food… and more! This year, the festival will be held August 1st and 2nd, in Oppenheimer Park.

The best antidote I know for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life is this: He or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she who is served.
