Village Fair II, Cates Park

The "Village Fair II 2012" is an event with historical meaning to Vancouver. It is more a revival event of the 1971 hippy “Renaissance-type Faire” from Cates Park ( Whey- Ah - Wicken meaning "Facing the wind" ), when musicians, crafters, minstrels, artisans, and performers of all kinds created an unique Village Fair for North Vancouver's people.

The 2012 Festival (August 11th & 12th) will be held just off Dollarton Highway near Deep Cove, alongside Cates Park's walkways, at approximately 100 yards from the Tsleil-Waututh Nation (people of the Inlet), on their land.
What do you expect to find there?:  live music, dancers, community groups, and other performers,  food, face painters and, of course, you'll find various artworks, paintings and crafts.

The vending area will be accommodated on the north-west side of the park, west of the children’s playground.  We will be there with our scented living crafts, miniature gardens and bonsai that we hope you  find inspiration with scented gifts or treasure for your beloved ones.


See you there!
