DateSaturday, June 10, 2017 Time: 12 to 8 p.m.


The Event: English Bay’s historic Haywood Bandstand will once again ring

with music as the West End Arts Society (WE Arts) presents the second

annual Summer Sounds Community Gathering from 12 to 8 p.m. Saturday June

10th, in Alexandra Park (Beach & Bidwell).

Come on down to Alexandra Park this Saturday for a good opportunity to spend some

time getting to know your neighbours, while enjoying great live music and other fun

family friendly activities. Eight solid hours of rocking musical performances from a

wide variety of great local bands will make for an unforgettable afternoon and evening

by the sea in a spectacular setting. WE Arts’ Art Market will be setup on Bidwell Street

at Davie – peruse work by local artists, get your face painted and continue on in to the

park for some great tunes. There will also be a large roster of Buskers at the Beach,

near the Inukshuk on English Bay.


The Organization: “WEArts is a grassroots volunteer organization working to

create community with arts and culture in a neighbourhood struggling with

social isolation, with very limited performance venues and places to gather,”

according to WE Arts Director Chris Hyndman. “The Summer Sounds Community

Gathering is an incredible neighbourhood initiative that will bring together people of all ages and

backgrounds  – a celebration of the diversity of our community in the West End.”

Partners & Supporters: This event has been created with the support of the

Vancouver Foundation’s Neighbourhood Small Grants program, the West End BIA,

and the West End Community Centre Association, and MyTone Records, together with many

other sponsors and community partners.

Performers: Live local entertainment will feature: Elegwen O’Maoileoin & The

Bop Apocalypse; The Quixotic Neurotics; The Fight Outside; Chelsea Charlton; Stella

Soul; Rollin’ Trainwreck; Derek Pitts; April Reign; Alpine Glow
