This month marks my 10 year anniversary of being a West End resident and I have to say, in my completely biased opinion, it’s Vancouver’s best neighbourhood. You can check out just a slice of what makes the West End great this weekend at the Robson Community Fair.
What 2nd Annual Robson Community Fair
Where 1600 Block of Robson Street in Vancouver
When Saturday, September 12, 2015 from 10:00am to 4:00pm
This event brings together businesses and community groups for a sidewalk sale and customer appreciation event. The West End BIA is also coordinating entertainment and activities:
The Cardero Stage will feature some of Vancouver’s best up-and-coming talent including Isaak Salomon, Gabe and the Oh Yeah’s, The Response, Monika Schwartzman and Hint of Lime.
Vancouver en Francais will host Film en Ville, a film-inspired city scavenger hunt starting and ending at the Robson Community Fair. To register your team, please visit their website.
Whole Foods Market Robson is planning a Whole Kids Foundation fundraising event in their parking lot (1675 Robson Street) from 12:00pm to 4:00pm.
The WE Arts Art Market will feature handcrafted items from local artisans and live collage painting. Single Line Theatre are debuting their “Verse & Verve” video series, a showcase of the West End’s creative community made possible through Neighbourhood Small Grants.
