    Blossom at MetropolisMar 5, 2019 - Mar 31, 2019


    Metropolis at Metrotown’s Grand Court will be the site of Blossom at Metropolis, a one-of-a-kind art installation made up of more than 250,000 cherry blossoms.

    Created by Vancouver interactive-arts company Hfour, Blossom at Metropolis encourages people to wander, take photos (including in an Instagram-worthy “selfie zone”), and sit in awe of the quarter-million-plus blossoms, which will be reflected in dozens of mirror spheres (with the largest being four metres in size) that create the illusion of infinite blooms hanging above them.

    As well, there will be a variety of floral art and Japanese cultural workshops every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during the installation’s 27 days, presented in collaboration with MUJI (Workshop Wednesdays) and Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre (Tuesdays and Thursdays). Workshops include origami, brush lettering, traditional Japanese paper and fabric art, flower arranging, traditional Japanese folk dancing, and much more. Visit for the complete schedule, registration information, and age restrictions (some workshops are all-ages).

    Luminescence IVMar 16, 2019 - Apr 13, 2019

    The 25 artists taking part in this year’s show include a half-dozen returning from previous years, with the rest being new to Luminescence. Pieces run the gamut from painting and photography to a variety of sculptural and three-dimensional works. All revolve around the theme of light.

    The show is family-friendly. Some of the work in the show will appeal particularly to kids – not the least of which is the dragon they’ll get a chance to climb on and interact with.

    Vancouver Cherry Blossom FestivalApr 4, 2019 - Apr 27, 2019


    The festival takes place at a variety of locations around the region. It is an annual renewal that takes place both outside, in the canopies of our parks and avenues, and inside, in our bodies, minds and heart. We, humans, are somehow mated with the flowering cherry trees. What they do, we do, each in our own fashion. And it almost doesn’t matter at first whether we know that it is happening. It happens in spite of us. Until we notice it, and then, wow, do we notice it.

    The Festival unites Vancouver’s citizens—a citizenry with a richly diverse cultural heritage—in happy celebration of this unique seasonal phenomenon. The Festival inspires participants to express their response to these extraordinary trees in music, poetry, photography, art, design, craft and cuisine. Each year there are more programs. Each year there are more participants. And while fostering community spirit and civic pride at home, the Festival is also building new international friendships and cross-cultural exchanges through the international Haiku Invitational program.
