Street performers from Vancouver, Canada, and around the world join forces to deliver two action-packed days of comedy, acrobatics, music and more along Granville Street in downtown Vancouver June 28 and 29.

Granville Street from Hastings to Smithe will be closed to traffic every weekend but open for dancing, music, interactive family activities, markets and more.
