Hundreds of tiny sheep landed on Vancouver Art Gallery's North Plaza during Lunarfest earlier this year. They are sure to invade once again for Taiwanfest September 5 - 7, injecting some fun and 'cute' into the city! Be sure to snap a picture with the critters while they're here (and be sure to tag @downtownvan)!
Are you heartless and don't care for tiny, cute sheep? Don't worry - Taiwanfest offers diverse programming for everyone!
Vancouver foodies, get ready because for three days only, you can experience amazing street food culture.
September 5 & 6, 11am - 9pm @800 Block Granville St.
