Soak up entertainment from local bands (The Ballantynes, Indian Wars, Mode Moderne, Manik 1derful, Too High Crew, Weed, and Love Cuts), DJs, an aboriginal drumming group, and more. Actor and comedian Ryan Beil will be the master of ceremonies and all proceeds from sponsors and a raffle will support Megaphone Magazine, which is sold on the streets by homeless and low-income vendors.

The Victory Square Block Party is more than a one-day music festival, it’s a celebration of the neighbourhood and community causes like Megaphone.

Stop by anytime between 2:00pm and 9:00pm on Sunday, September 2, 2012 for all of the free festivities. Victory Square is located between Pender and Hastings, Cambie and Hamilton, and is accessible by bus or SkyTrain (walk down from Waterfront or Stadium).
