After two successful years, Vancouver Street Dance Festival is back at Robson Square with a free all-ages event this Saturday, August 2, featuring dance battles, dance workshops, live DJ’s and bands.

What’s the goal of the festival? Vancouver has a thriving underground street dance community and VSDF wants to surface and showcase to the general public our culture, which is why they’ve made it completely accessible to all with a free festival right in the heart of Vancouver at Robson Square.
