Wake West Festival and Tea Party

Aug 28, 2004

By Catherine Barr


The Plaza of Nations rocked this past weekend with a first of a kind festival that celebrated both sport and music. The First Annual Wake West event featured three days of wakeboarding, a vendor/artist village, beer gardens and various music stages showcasing over 30 Canadian bands including Sum 41, Swollen Members, Bif Naked and The Tea Party. Check out the Saturday night action here.

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.

Every festival needs its volunteers to get it done right. From left: Harley Dziuba, Kadie Somers, Craig Hutchinson and Roya Kalantar.
