Kitsilano’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.

 

Khatsahlano Street Party

In 2020 this free event was scheduled to take place on July 11th and once again it was billed to be the year’s biggest arts and music festival within the City of Vancouver. However, the event was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic. It didn’t happen in 2021 either.

The 2022 Khatsahlano Street Party is scheduled to take place on Saturday, July 9th, from 11 am until 9 pm.

The Khatsahlano Street Party was supposed to celebrate its tenth anniversary in 2021. Instead, they will be celebrating the impressive milestone in 2022!

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

Where and When

In 2022 the street party happens on Saturday, July 9th. It starts at 11 am and the fun, entertainment and partying continues until around 9 pm.

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 usually features multiple stages with over fifty 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 daylong Khatsahlano event there are also yoga sessions, an urban obstacle course, a tea garden, arts and crafts stations, selfie booths, beer gardens, pie eating contests and more.
