A North Shore Festival by Youth for Youth

In partnership with the City and in lieu of an event this year, the CityFest crew will be celebrating youth week May 1-7, 2021 through an art-based activation at the Shipyards.

As youth can't gather in person this year, the CityFest team will be engaging youth in a mural project from ideation to execution through social media. Beginning May 1, youth artists will be executing the project at the Shipyards to mark CityFest and celebrate youth and community!

Youth are encouraged to participate in the mural project via Instagram @nvcityfest on May 1 and throughout the month to win some pretty great prizes (and support small business) by tagging the mural. @nvcityfest @cityofnorthvancouver

CityFest Background

CityFest started in 2002 when the City threw a party with some youth serving agencies to celebrate the opening of the Centennial Skate Park. That party included a BBQ and a small skate competition. Since that time, CityFest has grown to include performing artists, visual arts displays, interactive projects, food and the largest skate competition in Metro Vancouver. The festival, which is held annually during Youth Week, is run by youth, for youth - volunteers meet throughout the year to plan, coordinate and execute the event.
