About

Join us from August 3–August 12, 2018 for the 28th Annual Harmony Arts Festival.

 

For 28 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.
 
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.
 
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.

 

We would like to respectfully acknowledge that the Harmony Arts Festival is staged on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
