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.

Wherever you turn, you can find someone who needs you. Even if it is a little thing, do something for which there is no pay but the privilege of doing it. Remember, you don’t live in a world all of your own. Albert Schweitzer
