Harmony Arts Festival began 30 years ago with a simple dream: to give the North Shore a festival worthy of its unparalleled setting. Today, the festival attracts more than 140,000 visitors from the Sea to Sky and across Metro Vancouver. Together, we celebrate the spirit, lifestyle and natural beauty that make West Vancouver so special. Join us in making the 30th year the best yet with even more ground-breaking performances, stunning visual arts, and world-class culinary experiences.

Art Beat showcases local artists in local businesses in Ambleside Beach and Dundarave Village. The program works in partnership with the Ambleside-Dundarave Business Improvement Association in order to highlight the unique businesses along Marine Drive.


Art Beat seeks to promote artists as part of the Harmony Arts Festival experience, by showcasing their work in the storefronts of local businesses. Artists working in all mediums, including glass, ceramics, painting and jewellery are welcome to apply.


The Harmony Arts Festival reserves the right to select artists based on the appropriateness of the artwork and suitability of placement with participating store locations.

  • There is no fee to participate
