FAIR IN THE SQUARE, June 9, 2024

Central City Foundation and our partners at Vancouver Community College were so grateful to once again host this wonderful event which provided a much-needed opportunity for all of us to connect with our community, while celebrating the vibrancy and resilience of our inner city. A special thank you to our many sponsors, volunteers, community partners and social enterprises for their inspiring support. The 16th annual Fair in the Square brought together people from various parts of the city to connect with our inner city neighbours and with the non-profit agencies that are doing amazing work in the community. There was great live music and entertainment, arts and crafts, an artisan market and free BBQ, cupcakes, watermelon and coffee. Each year, more than 3,000 people join us in Victory Square Park to connect, celebrate and build hope.

A message from VCC: our co-host
