West Vancouver Harmony Arts Festival

Aug 1, 2004

By Catherine Barr


The 14th Annual Harmony Arts Festival is underway at various locations across West Vancouver. The festival, which showcases North Shore art and artists of all genres, features art displays, sculpture, raku, sketches, weekend craft markets, outdoor film screening, live concerts and special sections devoted to youth and world music. Still, the most popular feature continues to be the Sunset Concert series which takes place every evening at 7:30 pm at John Lawson Park. They've added special concession customer tables and chairs closer up (which cuts down on the available free space), so come down early if you want to bring your own chairs. Festival runs until August 8, so come on down.

Vancouver's best events and celebrity functions are all archived here. Vancouver pubs, clubs, nightclubs, gala events and fundraisers are included. Thanks for viewing.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.

At 86 years young, band leader Dal Richards can still belt out a tune. The Order of Canada recipient and his 17-piece orchestra appeared Sunday night at John Lawson Park.
Look for volunteers like Roz Zolhayat (left), Shahrzad Pedram and Paria Saremi who are happy to collect donations during the concert shows.

Big crowds like this are typical at the Sunset Concert series. Get there early for good seats.
Dancing to the big band sounds at the outdoor concert stage were Gerry and Ken Smith who just happened to celebrate their 49th anniversary last month.
Getting good front row seats for a girls' night out were Petra Gatica (left), Raquel Garcia and Bibiana Grossling.
The "Dal Richards" CD was a hot seller as Cordelia Benjamin (left), Elaine Koochin and Cora Whiting could tell you.
