Art festival in six Vancouver “districts”
Crafted Vancouver, North America’s largest craft-based festival, is an annual 25-day event that puts outstanding local, Canadian and international craftsmanship at centre stage.
Events take place at galleries, shops and other venues across Metro Vancouver and include gallery exhibitions, artist talks, hands-on workshops, classes and more. Crafted Vancouver also offers free online screenings at their REEL Crafted Film Festival, a two-day event that features craft-focused films from around the world.
The festival separates the city into six walkable “creative districts” with closely connected events: Armoury District, Chinatown, Gastown, Granville Island Artisans, Parker Street Studios | Mergatroid Building, and Railtown. So, no matter where you are, there’s something nearby.
