ABOUT THE SOCIETY

The Powell Street Festival Society’s (PSFS) mission is to cultivate Japanese Canadian arts and culture to connect communities. Our main activity is producing the Powell Street Festival (PSF) in Vancouver’s historic Japanese Canadian neighbourhood. PSF is an annual celebration of Japanese Canadian arts and culture. It is the largest event of its kind in Canada and the longest running festival in Metro Vancouver, entering its 41st year. The Society also produces its own programming as part of an annual season and participates in co-presentations with other arts organizations throughout the year.
