The youth of the North Shore present CityFEST, the largest Youth Week event in the Lower Mainland.
There's always a great line up of activities that includes live local youth music and a dance showcase on the big stages, free photobooths, local youth art show, BBQ and food booths, prizes and games.
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.
