VANCOUVER JAPANESE LANGUAGE SCHOOL & JAPANESE HALL FOOD BAZAAR
Sunday November 4, 12pm – 3pm
Japanese Hall, 487 Alexander
The popular Fall Food Bazaar is back after the Language School underwent a heritage childcare renovation. The completion of the building is beautiful and the kitchen is ready to be put to work. Come early to this semi-annual Japanese feast and eat, eat, eat! VJLS & JH volunteers work feverishly over many days to make and serve a wide variety of menu items, hot, fresh, seasonal and affordable. This fundraising event is always popular, with children’s games corner, door and raffle prizes, and a silent auction.
As a special festival treat, Axé Capoeira will perform at 1pm. Expect to be enlivened by the drums and vocals of Brazilian percussion music, be amazed by gravity-defying acrobatics, and inspired by the capoeiristas and dancers. Entrance by donation to the Bazaar
This event was on Day 12 of the 12 Days of the Heart of the City Festival. Please check the website for more events!
