When is Khatsahlano?
Saturday July 7, 2018 – 11am to 9pm

How much are tickets?
It’s completely free, brought to you with love by the Merchants of West 4th and our amazing Sponsors.

Is there food?
Absolutely! West 4th is well known for their award-winning restaurants – there’s over 50 great places to eat & drink on. Kick back on a patio, or grab take-away and make your own picnic. There’s an option for every price point. Or take a wander down to Food Truck Way, between Balsam and Larch, showcasing some of Vancouver’s finest street food vendors.

What happens if it rains?
Khatsahlano is happening rain or shine. We hope for the shine but as resilient Vancouverites we know how to make it through a rainy day. The party happening all around you certainly helps. Please plan accordingly for the weather, sunscreen, water bottle, umbrella, comfy shoes.

Can I bring my pet along?
Service animals are welcome on the festival site and at select retailers but due to the high volume of traffic, for your furry friend’s comfort and safety we recommend you leave em maxin’ and relaxin’ at home.

We take great pride in our home on West 4th Avenue and work very hard to leave it as good or better than we found it. Trash belongs in a trash bin; help us make sure it gets there! There plenty of bins provided along with street for waste, recyclables and organics.


Where is Khatsahlano?
Our festival takes place on West 4th Avenue in Kitsilano, between Burrard Street and Macdonald Street. Main Festival Entrance points are Burrard, Arbutus, and Macdonald, and side street entrances are at Cypress, Maple, Yew, Vine, Balsam, Stephens and Trafalgar.

I’m coming to Khatsahlano, where can I park?
Parking is at a premium. There is no on-site parking, however the City of Vancouver offers street pay parking in business areas surrounding West 4th. Allow yourself ample time to find parking. We encourage you to carpool with friends!
DO NOT PARK IN RESIDENTIAL PERMIT AREAS – this parking is by resident decal only, and unauthorized vehicles will be ticketed and/or towed. Be kind to our Kitsilano neighbours.
