Comprising 300 unique merchants from Collingwood to Larch, West Broadway makes you feel right at home, with dozens of desirable destinations to check off the to-do list and wish list!  From fantastic shops to entertainment, the area’s heritage comes to life during Greek Day on Broadway, the oldest and largest one-day Greek festival in the city.

Happening on June 26, 2022, Greek Day is a portion of the larger, month-long Hellenic Cultural Festival that takes place in Kitsilano every June. In partnership with the Hellenic Canadian Congress of BC and the community, West Broadway BIA is celebrating Greek Heritage Month by highlighting Greek heritage in Kitsilano and beyond.

This event is the perfect occasion for visitors and locals alike to learn all about Greek culture, food, traditional dance, music, and more and celebrate heritage in the vibrant and welcoming neighbourhood of Greektown on West Broadway.

With this fantastic celebration, you don’t need to set off for Santorini to get a taste of Greek life! 

A captivating and colourful community

But make sure you bring a healthy appetite! There will be countless delicious dishes to sample, including loukoumades, souvlaki, spanakopita, and more. Snack and saunter as you take it all in, observe the music and entertainment on the live stages, enjoy Greek House at the revitalized Hollywood Theatre, and revel in this collective celebration.
