The Wesbrook Village Festival is our signature event – this is where we really shine. Never been? Think of it like a block party for 5,000 people. All throughout the neighbourhood, Wesbrook Village comes to life. There’ll be a free BBQ, rock climbing wall, fun family entertainment like Will Stroet and His Backyard Band, and performances from the UBC Dance Team, UBC A Cappella, Harrison Lee (resident yoyo ninja), and a lot more. Classic kids stuff like the bouncy castle, face painters, and a balloon twister will be here – wouldn’t be a party without them. Meanwhile, sidewalk sales will showcase Wesbrook Village retailers, with plenty of great prizes to score. All in all, it’s an incredible end-of-summer feeling.
Plus, this year, BierCraft and Doughgirls, two new arrivals, will be giving out samples and greeting the neighbourhood.
