Fair Square connects neighbours 2022

Save the date: the 15th annual Fair in the Square is on June 11, 2023!

Central City Foundation and our partners at Vancouver Community College are so grateful for the return of this wonderful event which provides a much-needed opportunity for all of us to reconnect with our community, while celebrating the vibrancy and resilience of our inner city. The 15th annual Fair in the Square will bring together people from various parts of the city to connect with our inner city neighbours and with the non-profit agencies that are doing amazing work in the community, as well as to enjoy some great live music and entertainment, arts and crafts, an artisan market and free BBQ, cupcakes, watermelon and coffee. Each year, more than 3,000 people join us in Victory Square Park to connect, celebrate and build hope. We hope you will join us.

A message from VCC: our co-host
