Vancouver’s four-day fête in celebration of visual arts, design, and crafts, the Eastside Culture Crawl, runs November 14 to 17, 2019 throughout Vancouver’s Eastside community. The Crawl will present a line-up of more than 500 visual artists who will open their art studios, collaborative work spaces, garages, and homes — to engage with the public, showcase their remarkable work, and encourage fellowship.
23rd Edition of the Eastside Culture Crawl
- When: November 14 to November 17, 2019
Thursday & Friday: 5:00pm to 10:00pm
Saturday & Sunday: 11:00am to 6:00pm
- Where: Various Eastside locations between Columbia, 1st Ave, Victoria Dr, and the waterfront
Encompassing the region bounded by Columbia Street, 1st Avenue, Victoria Drive, and the Waterfront, the Eastside Arts District is home to the highest concentration of visual artists, designers, and craft makers in Canada. The Crawl eagerly welcomes arts patrons and collectors, community builders, and inquisitive tourists to immerse themselves in this enriching community of artists through on-site visits, and interactive installations.
This year, the beloved arts festival is excited to offer an expanded lineup of events with the addition of the Displacement Exhibition and a series of free artist talks hosted at various studios throughout Vancouver’s Eastside. View a full lineup of events here »
More people are responding to this dynamic visual arts community than ever before. While the Crawl has grown in size and attendance every year since its inception in 1994, last year the festival saw record- breaking attendance with more than 45,000 people meeting artists, exploring studios, and participating in workshops over the course of four days.
The Crawl provides visitors with a behind-the-scenes peek into life as an artist, allowing them to engage with different forms of art, including painting, sculpture, pottery, photography, jewelry, glass art, furniture, and much more.
