Powell Street Festival Society

In partnership with Tealeaves, we are launching Kiai! tea as a gift to donors who contribute over $50. Kiai! is an empowering signature tea that captures the bold tradition, solidarity and innovation of Powell Street Festival in its 40th year!

The Powell Street Festival Society’s vision includes a society enriched and interconnected through Japanese Canadian arts and culture. We encourage the recognition of Japanese Canadians as a creative force within the broader community. Our main activity is producing the Powell Street Festival (PSF) in Vancouver’s historic Japanese Canadian neighbourhood.

Our Kiai! fundraising campaign aims to raise $40,000 to set us on a strong path into our future. Our plans include expanding our festival site, upgrading our food vendor program with fire-proof tents and an energy efficient hot-water-on-demand system, improving our storage to save 80 human-labour hours during the set-up and take-down of the festival, and creating new children's activities.
