CityFest Background
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.
