The Harmony Arts Festival, presented by Odlum Brown Limited, will once again celebrate arts, culture, food, and music in West Vancouver this summer. Running from August 2nd until August 11th, 2013.
Families will love Artsy Kids Outdoor Studio, Spirit of the West and others will perform during the Sunset Concert Series, the Art Market will showcase local artists and designers on Argyle Avenue between 14th and 16th Street, and the Waterfront Lounge will be open daily at the foot of 15th Street for casual dining and entertainment from the Pacific Arbour Garden Stage. A full festival guide will be distributed in the North Shore News on Sunday, July 28th, 2013.
Other signature events include RARE, sponsored by Fresh St Market, which will take place on August 8th. This culinary evening is inspired by the West Vancouver Museum’s collection of notable Canadian artists including Emily Carr, Gordon Smith, Jack Shadbold and more. The beachfront at Lawson Creek Studio will transform into a contemporary casual dining lounge featuring Rodney’s Oyster House. The knowledgeable staff from house wine will be on site to serve the beverages.
Best of the West
The third annual Best of the West is another signature event, happening August 7th. Thirteen of the North Shore’s best restaurants will be paired with thirteen BC wineries and tasked with creating the perfect complementary dish. The evening’s guests will vote on their favourite, with the winning restaurant and winery team crowned BEST of the WEST for 2013.
