The Powell Street Festival is an annual celebration of Japanese Canadian Ats & Culture. We rely on hundreds of volunteers to make this festival the wonderful event that it is! Volunteering is a great opportunity to meet new friends, spend time with friends and family, and get behind the scenes of this vibrant and special event.

The Festival is on BC Day long weekend, Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 am to 7 pm.
