Sneakerheads, get ready for what’s going to be the calendar event of the year – Hype City 3.

Vancouver Sneakerheads Group and Vancouver Streetwear Community are bringing Canada’s largest sneaker and streetwear event to the Harbour Convention Centre on Sunday, June 3.

Following two hugely popular conventions in the city, Hype City 3 is bringing in some of the world’s highest streetwear and fashion commodities for you to get your shop on in style.

From Supreme to Yeezy to Jordan, you’ll find in-demand items from across the world at the event. Not forgetting the limited edition pieces and rare vintage items in pristine condition.

Real talk: Hype City curates the largest Supreme collection in Canada, courtesy of local company NFS. This means you can get your hands on exclusive items and you might be the only one in the country to have them.

You can also take part in interactive activities and learn about the history of sneakers like the Air Force 1 at Hype City. Plus, you’ll be in with the chance of winning prizes with raffles and giveaways happening throughout the event.

The Heat Vault Keymaster will also be at the event as the brand is sharing a booth with Dipt. Heat Vault will have the only exclusive Keymaster at the event where you can pay just $5 for your chance to win rare sneakers and gear.

Don’t worry if you miss out on the chance to play, the Heat Vault Keymaster will be at Dipt after Hype City, too. You’ll even find Dipt at the expo selling their urban goods and showcasing the largest Air Force 1 collection in the country.

Naturally, you’re going to want to look slick wearing the new gear you buy at the event and you can because The Liminal Grooming Lounge will be there. Go get yourself a fresh cut from the amazing team and feel like a million dollars.

Prime Quality Pro will be providing some of the entertainment at the event. The lineup includes a live DJ, RDGE, who has performed at venues like MIA Nightclub and Fortune Sound Club.

Early bird tickets to the event cost $20 via Eventbrite so you have the option to snap up yours soon, or pay $25 at the door.
