Harmony Arts Festival began more than 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 again this year for ground-breaking performances, stunning visual arts, and world-class culinary experiences.
