Our main activity is producing the Powell Street Festival in Vancouver’s historic Japanese Canadian neighbourhood, Paueru Gai. With the support of over 400 volunteers, this two-day free event is the largest of its kind in Canada and the longest running festival in Metro Vancouver. PSFS is a non-profit professional arts presenter that is progressive, diverse, contemporary, and compelling.
