What to know about the 2023 Eastside Culture Crawl


Celebrating the arts for their 27th year

The Eastside Culture Crawl, now in its 27th year, is a beloved celebration of the arts in Vancouver's Eastside Arts District. This annual festival offers a unique opportunity to explore the creative spirit of this vibrant community. For decades, it has been a platform for both emerging and established artists to showcase their talents, pushing the boundaries of artistic expression.

This year, the Eastside Culture Crawl introduces an exciting theme, "Out of Control," challenging artists to break the rules, embrace recklessness, and explore the unrestricted. Opus Art Supplies is proud to be a sponsor of this inspiring event, having previously supported past years of the East Side Culture Crawl and Eastside Arts Society's CREATE! Arts Festival the past few summers.
