Art Downtown

Art Downtown is a vibrant annual event located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, now celebrating its 5th edition in 2024.


This community-focused initiative, in partnership with the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association and Vancouver Pride Society, transforms downtown into an inclusive and accessible open-air gallery and artist studio.

Free and open to the general public, Art Downtown welcomes people of all races and genders to enjoy and engage with a diverse array of artistic expressions. One of its distinctive features is the onsite creation of art by artists, allowing attendees to witness and interact with the creative process firsthand in a plaza setting with live musical performances.

This event not only celebrates local artists and their work but also promotes cultural enrichment and community engagement. It serves as a platform for artists to showcase their talents and fosters a sense of unity and inclusivity within the community.


Through educational workshops, interactive installations, and performances, Art Downtown aims to inspire creativity, appreciation for the arts, and connections among participants, making it a cornerstone of Vancouver's cultural calendar. 

Lot 19, 855 West Hastings,

Wednesdays from July 3rd - August 28th from 11 AM till 5 PM.
