Official sponsors of awesome

We’re committed to bringing unique, high-quality events to Downtown Vancouver because we understand the economic and social impact they have on our community. We sponsor about 30 different festivals and events each year which are, for the most part, free and take place in our public spaces.

Sustainability is also deeply important to us. We have included new sustainability components in our festival guidelines to encourage our sponsorship partners to incorporate sustainable practices.
