Family Street Fair to Celebrate Canada 150 With Art, Culture, Performances, Activities and Sea Creatures! Saturday Sept 2nd! 2100 Block Robinson Street - FREE!
The Connect Street Fair is an opportunity for celebrating diversity, empowerment, belonging and hope!
Called 'Recasting Reconciliation and Exploring Diversity through Culture and Art', this is one of the few community exhibitions in Celebration of Canada's 150th Birthday.
'The Caring Place' received a grant for this free family program, and is partnering with community, businesses and churches to make it happen. 10am - 4pm Saturday Sept 3rd!
The ability to share arts and culture opens the door between cultural groups in the community and can create positive discussions on building our future together.
The multicultural and Aboriginal hosts will showcase Canada's people as a whole.
The Fair will feature an ethnic fashion show, music from many cultures and genres, interactive art exhibits, main stage demonstrations and a 40 foot tank of live aquarium animals from the Vancouver Museum!
