The Powell Street Festival is the largest Japanese Canadian festival in the country and the longest running community arts celebration in Vancouver.
This year’s extravaganza includes a new interactive installation entitled “Macro Maki”, a special presentation on Japan’s Third Gender, a panel with two of Haruki Murakami’s top translators, and a performance by the dynamic duo George and Noriko – a Japanese blues cowboy and Tsugaru samisen player from Melbourne, Australia.
