The Dunbar Village Business Association is hosting its annual Harvest Festival on September 19th with family-friendly entertainment, games, and activities for all. I’ve heard that a must-see is the Vancouver Rabbit Agility Club demos as well!
Dunbar Village Harvest Festival
Where: Between West 26th & West 30th on Dunbar
When: Saturday, September 19, 2015 from 11:00am to 3:00pm
Tickets: No tickets required, free. RSVP to the event on Facebook for updates.
Stop by to check out fitness classes, live music, bouncy castles, bubble sumo wrestling, and carnival games. There will also be giveaways and sidewalk sales from the businesses that make up the thriving Dunbar community. Cotton candy, helium balloons and an old-fashioned fire truck will add to the spirit of the day. Children’s entertainer Jenny Wright will be on stage, as will the Toy Story characters Woody and company. Whisky Minstrels or Tatiana Speed & Her Band will also entertain along with acoustic guitar favourites Rogue Messengers.
Stong’s Market is providing a dunk tank and barbecue with proceeds going to the Canadian Cancer Society, while proceeds from Shoppers Drug Mart’s sidewalk sale benefit Children’s & Women’s Health Centre of BC Foundation.
A pop-up art installation called the Working Holiday Still Life Harvest Project will feature artists Elisa Yon, Leah Weinstein, and Jaspal Marwah from the Artists in Communities Residency, sponsored by the Dunbar Community Centre/Vancouver Park Board. Visitors are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to contribute to the installation and they’ll go to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society.
