History

We acknowledge that the Harmony Arts Festival is 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.

Harmony Arts Festival, presented by Odlum Brown Limited, began 30 years ago with a simple dream: to give the North Shore a festival worthy of its unparalleled setting.

The desire to create a community-oriented celebration of the visual arts, has grown to include culinary, performing arts and literary arts. With Harmony, we share the very best that West Vancouver has to offer: creative arts and community, all set against a view that can't be beat.

We've seen the profound impact that a diverse and sophisticated festival like Harmony Arts can have on our community and its citizens. In previous years, Harmony Arts is where longtime locals mingle with new neighbours, art enthusiasts meet enthusiastic novices, and generations come together on the waterfront.

Along the way, we've built a community festival that extends beyond the North Shore. The festival has attracted more than 140,000 annual visitors from the Sea to Sky and across Metro Vancouver.

Harmony Arts Festival. A uniquely West Van experience.
