WEst Vancouver's Harmony Arts Festival 2005

Jul 30, 2005

By Catherine Barr


It's the one week that is really starting to put West Vancouver on the map. The 15th Annual Harmony Arts Festival has so much to do that you could go and do something different every day. There are live concerts every night, movies in the park, a craft fair on both weekends, lessons, demonstrations, gallery tours and so much more. It's a local salute to North Shore artists that screams community pride. Congrats to all involved.

Catherine Barr, Vancouver's celebrity events reporter and photographer, is supported online by CLR Communications Ltd.

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.
