Vines Art Festival, Vancouver’s unique multidisciplinary eco-arts festival, features over 70 performing and
visual artists at parks throughout Vancouver: Trout Lake Park, Kitsilano Beach, CRAB Park, Granville Island, Roundhouse Community Centre, and Strathcona Park - August 8th-19th, with the main event at Trout Lake Park on August 18th. In its fourth year, this 100% free, all-ages, event joins activism with the arts, not to mention it’s fun, interactive and celebratory!
A community-driven event featuring visual and performing artists, eco-conscious community leaders, herbalists, urban farmers, and woodcarvers, Vines celebrates our stunning Coast Salish land through earth-inspired art and performance. Vine’s main event is at Trout Lake Park, at the South end of the lake, on August 18th from 1:00 pm - 7:30 pm where artists will enliven the park performing, installing and leading workshops on “earthstages.” On August 14th and 16th at CRAB Park from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm, Squamish language singers, hip hop and dance artists (Kimmortal, Missy D and Immigrant Lessons) join stem mother tongue (Eddy Van Wyck) exploring the intersection between mental health and environmental justice, using raw voice expression and stories in artist’s native languages.
