Vancouver’s Khatsahlano Street Party

Khatsahlano Street Party

The Khatsahlano Street Party is a giant music and arts festival that takes place on West 4th Avenue in Vancouver’s Kitsilano district in July.

In 2024 the event happens on July 6th (so on the weekend after Canada Day). Other events that take place on the same weekend as the Khatsahlano Street Party most years are the Carnaval del Sol Latin Festival, Taiwanese Canadian Cultural Festival, Greek Summerfest and On Your Block Festival. There is also the Harrison Festival of the Arts, Symphony at Sunset Beach and a number of other great events too.

To learn about what else is happening in the Lower Mainland around the same time, see Vancouver’s July Calendar of Events. For details about the Khatsahlano Street Party, continue reading.

The street party features free concerts with BC-based bands, artisan products for sale and gazillions of people. There were market stalls, food vendors, family-friendly activities and even a beer garden.

Where and When

In 2024 the street party happens on Saturday, July 6th. It usually starts at 11:00 am and the fun, entertainment and partying continues until around 9:00 pm.

This past year’s festivities took place along West 4th Avenue, between Burrard Street and Macdonald Street.

TIP #1: With tens of thousands of people likely attending, parking in the area can be a serious challenge. Take public transit if you can and avoid the immediate vicinity with your car.

TIP #2: There is usually a bicycle valet service on-site and, being just a few blocks from the water and the Burrard Street Bridge, walking and cycling access via the False Creek Seawall is fairly convenient. You can access the free bike valet on Cypress Street (between West 5th and West 6th) and on Stephens Street (between West 5th and West 6th).

What to Expect at Khatsahlano

The Khatsahlano Street Party features multiple stages with over 50 local performing artists as well as market vendors, street performers, food trucks and an artisan market. Essentially it’s a massive street party, much like Car Free Day events or Greek Day on Broadway, which are at other times in the summer. Khatsahlano though has more and larger concerts.

At the day-long Khatsahlano event there are also normally yoga sessions, an urban obstacle course, a tea garden, arts and crafts stations, selfie booths, beer gardens, pie eating contests and more.
