Vancouver Street Festival
Historic Vancouver Street comes alive with a day of gourmet food, great music and beautiful handcrafted artisan stalls. This year, Albany's strong connection with the production of wool is celebrated through a history walk, the Vintage Tweed Ride, exhibitions and craft activities.
The ever-popular Vintage Tweed Ride weaves through the historic streets of Albany before arriving with fanfare at the festival, which this year offers four sensorial worlds. The Story of Wool is an immersive experience of Albany’s identity through craft, contemporary art and photographs. The Ladies’ Parlour is filled with vintage fashion, poetry and gourmet delicacies while The Gentlemen’s Club is heavy with jazz, folk and spice-laden food. Young people will love the Manga Milkbar which fuses a 1950s vibe with vintage anime.
Vancouver Street Festival is presented by Act-Belong-Commit. Supported by Healthway promoting the Act-Belong-Commit message, Lotterywest, the WA Government through the Department of Culture and the Arts, Tourism WA and the Department of Regional Development through its Royalties for Regions program.
