John and I go every year and it’s such a fantastic way to spend a day. There are so many performers, cultural pavilions, and food options. It’s also really easy to get to the grounds from the Canada Line, just walk over from Richmond Centre.

All the way from South Korea, k-Pop star Verbal Jint headlines the expanded Friday night and Canada’s own Tokyo Police Club and Dragonette perform on Saturday alongside an eclectic lineup of cultural performances, dance troupes, buskers, chefs and more.
