A carnival like atmosphere will see music, dance, food, circus, and heritage themed attractions highlighting the 2010 Davie Day Street Festival on Saturday, September 11th
Four blocks of Davie Street from Burrard to Broughton Streets will be closed to vehicular traffic all day on Saturday, September 11th as the West End Business Improvement Association (WEBIA) hosts its seventh annual celebration of the history, culture and creativity of Vancouver’s West End.
Included in this year’s festival is the heritage zone featuring 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 and the 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.
The Concert Stage will add a first class musical component to this exciting day with an eclectic mix of stunning talent from Really Rod (is he really Rod Stewart?) plus Laurel Murphy, The Rogue Messengers, Kunaka Marimba, Jessica Davidson, and Shawn Khlookoff. Returning by popular demand, the illustrious Kim Kuzma (pictured right), will delight the crowd with her soaring vocal range and sassy stage presence.
All in all, Davie Day promises to be a fun and thoroughly entertaining day out for the whole family – including the dog – and it’s free! Come celebrate Vancouver’s West End in the Davie Village.
