Greek Day is part of a Hellenic Cultural Week running from June 16 - 25.
This festival drew about 60,000 visitors each year until our "friendly" Vancouver Council with
full backing of Vancouver's finest, I think we all know who, decided to shut it down.
But this year the Greek Festival will be back on West Broadway, near all those wonder full Greek restaurants.
Lets all go there to beat 60,000. Click here to get to the official Greek Days website.

during the city's largest annual festival. The Vancouver
International Jazz Festival is recognized internationally as one
of the finest and most adventurous music festivals in the world,
presenting a huge range of jazz, world, improvised music and
blues. Last year over 430,000 attended the festival, accommodations, transportation companies and tour operators could
not keep up with the demands. Washington State licence

population from Seattle enjoying the festivities. The

emerging artists from across Canada and around the world at 40
venues. Enjoy both ticketed shows and many free events including
