English Bay’s historic Haywood Bandstand will once again ring with music as WE Arts presents Summer Sounds Community Picnic from 1:00pm to 8:00pm Saturday June 4, in Alexandra Park.

Bring your beach towels, lawn chairs, picnic baskets, and the whole family for all or any portion of the festivities. Seven solid hours of great music, song, and a singer-songwriter circle will make for an unforgettable afternoon and evening by the sea in a spectacular setting.

This event has been created with the support of the Vancouver Foundation’s Neighbourhood Small Grants program and 100 In 1 Day Vancouver, a global festival returning to Vancouver for its third year on June 4, giving residents a chance to demonstrate their people power across the city. Summer Sounds Community Picnic is one of the West End’s 100 in 1 Day events produced by WE Arts members and West End Art Jam.

“WE Arts is a grassroots volunteer organization working to create community with arts and culture in a neighbourhood struggling with social isolation,” according to Chris Hyndman, Director of WE Arts. “The West End community is coming together to collaborate and create a family fun neighbourhood event, and celebrate the sounds of summer in the West End.”
