Dog loving families will want to head to the Vancouver Art Gallery’s stunning new plaza with the pooch for this weekend’s dog-themed LunarFest event. Yup, you can bring Fido to this arts and cultural celebration of this year’s Chinese New Year.
This free two-day festival features lunar traditions, culinary delicacies, crafts, traditional lunar performances, art installations and more.
Visit the Children’s Festival booth and make a pair of Lunar New Year’s doggie ears!
Meet the “Canadog – The Space Husky, ” an inflatable husky from the stars (see above!) and immerse yourself and your family in creativity and innovation with Chinese arts and crafts. Lose yourself in a sea of stars in Moon Crawl, find your fortune for the new year, and bring home a Puppy Lantern (or doggie ears) for a new friend.
It all takes place this Saturday and Sunday Feb 24 & 25th. Admission is FREE for all friends – whether two-legged or four!
PS: If you don’t bring (or have) a dog, you are also welcome, and you could head inside afterwards to the Gallery’s vibrant new show featuring the work of Takashi Murakami.
