What are Pop-Up Events?

The Pop-Up Pavilion, a portable kiosk/theatre/meeting space, will move to various neighbourhoods around the city. The Pop-Up event is staffed and activated with the goal of bringing people together to celebrate spring and our glorious cherry blossoms. It serves as a meeting spot and hosts performances, activities, community partners and information about the Festival.


Utilizing parks or public spaces and working with BIA partners and local organizations, it fosters inclusivity throughout Greater Vancouver. Programming is community-driven, decided with each community, the VCBF, and assistance from the Young Leaders of Tomorrow. They coordinate as Line Producers, ensuring the pavilion reflects local communities, and engages citizens of all ages.
