July 31–August 9, 2020


Join us from July 31–August 9, 2020, for the 30th Annual Harmony Arts Festival.

For 30 years, the Harmony Arts Festival, presented by Odlum Brown Limited, has been one of the North Shore’s most popular cultural events. The free festival draws crowds from all over the Lower Mainland to celebrate a harmonious balance of visual, culinary and performing arts on the spectacular West Vancouver waterfront. The ten-day festival attracts over 140,000 attendees. Strong sponsorship support, dedicated artist participation and eager volunteers have helped to build and define the Harmony Arts Festival.

Join us for world-class musical performances, inspiring art exhibitions and demonstrations, mouth-watering culinary events and enjoy the natural beauty of the setting. With over 150 free events set on a stunning backdrop of the iconic Stanley Park, there is something for everyone at the Harmony Arts Festival.

We want to acknowledge that we are on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Squamish Nation, Tsleil-Waututh Nation and Musqueam Nation. We recognize and respect them as nations in this territory, as well as their historic connection to the lands and waters around us since time immemorial.


The Harmony Arts Festival takes place in West Vancouver along the waterfront on Argyle Avenue, from 14th to 16th Street. Festival sites include John Lawson Park, Millennium Park, Ambleside Landing, the Music Box, the Silk Purse and the Ferry Building Gallery.
