DAVIE DAY STREET FESTIVAL

By WEBIA on August 23, 2010 - 2:58pm

Sep 11 2010 - 11:00am
Sep 11 2010 - 8:00pm

A carnival like atmosphere will see music, dance, food, circus, and heritage themed attractions highlighting the much anticipated Davie Day Street Festival. Four blocks of Davie Street from Burrard to Broughton Streets will be closed to vehicular traffic all day on Saturday, September 11th.

This exciting family day, named after former Premier Davie, will centre around our kick-off this year for the upcoming birthday - Vancouver 125. An impressive heritage zone will feature old-fashioned lollipops, a photographer taking turn-of-the-century pictures, The Sylvia Hotel, and lots to see and do including animals and blacksmith demonstrations in an authentic historical setting.

In the KidZone there will be circus demonstrations, and you can climb aboard an ambulance, or the fun SS Discovery. Our Doggy Zone will round out the attractions with a guest artist, Eric Ginsburg from New York City, who will create whimsical and waggish portraits of man's best friend.

In celebration of our recent incorporation as The Memewar Arts & Publishing Society, Memewar Magazine invites you to join us for a night of comedy! Clearly, the mass of legal paperwork involved with becoming a non-profit society was anything but funny, so we needed to host a fundraising event which would let us laugh away our bureaucratic nightmares.

Day: Friday, August 21
Time: 9:00 – 11:30 PM
Place: Café Deux Soleils (2096 Commercial Drive)
Cover: $8

Featuring: comedy performances by Antoinette Keane, James Masters, Christopher James, and Andrew von Rosenbach, improv from Dangerous Portion, and special video presentations by Man Hussy.
