The Volunteer Application for the Powell Street Festival Is Now Closed

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.
