Stroll and shop at the juried Artisan Market both Friday & Saturday. The Market features some of BC’s finest artists and designers displaying a variety of hand crafted items. The Festival includes many talented artists!

The outdoor festival is a fun and engaging event with a painting competition, kids workshop, artisan market, live music & entertainment, and even more.


3-2-1 . . . PAINT! The final words one often hears when entering the colour massacres of live painting competitions.  Usually a short amount of time, a palette of colours, brush in hand and an audience of eager onlookers excited about what creations lay in store from the competitors.  Vancouver has seen a plethora of new live painting events pop up in recent years.  This is our 4th year featuring our very own Park’s Edge Paint Off: Live International Painting Tournament.  Many people have never seen how paintings are created and it is an exciting spectacle to get a glimpse of what the creative process looks like first hand. Mingle that with an emphasis on speed and the chance for prizes and recognition and it’s a recipe for a fun engaging event with thrills, excitement and culture. Audience voting determine the winners of the events, and silent auction for the real prize of those who will get to walk home with a one-of-a-kind piece of art.   Burnaby Tourism, the local destination marketing organization and official ambassador of Burnaby have donated the prize money for the people’s choice 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners of the Park’s Edge Paint Off!

All artwork created during the event will be available for purchase . . . you just have to win the silent auction!  Good Luck!
