Kitsilano's biggest block party is going to feel like an IRL music video.
Khatsahlano Street Party is taking over West 4th Avenue once again this summer and we're not complaining. Stretching across West 4th Avenue, the festival soundtrack will turn the ten blocks of food trucks, beer and seltzer gardens, games and shopping into the ultimate summer vibe on July 9, 2022.
Zulu Records' curated festival playlist will feature melodic, punk and even Australian folk rock performances plus other music genres.
Love is in the air and at the festival too! Keep an eye out for not one nor two but eight brides getting married at Khatsahlano this year.
There will also be a Host Nations Pavilion to showcase local indigenous artists from the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, like basket weaving, live carving and an Indigenous marketplace.
