May 1st - 7th, 2021

In partnership with the City and in lieu of an event this year, the CityFest crew will be celebrating youth week May 1 -7th through an art based activation at the Shipyards. As youth cannot gather in person this year, the CityFest team will be engaging youth in a mural project from ideation to execution through social media. Beginning May 1, youth artists will be executing the project at the Shipyards to mark CityFest and celebrate youth and community! Youth are encouraged to participate in the mural project via Instagram @nvcityfest on May 1 and throughout the month to win some pretty great prizes (and support small business) by tagging the mural @nvcityfest @cityofnorthvancouver
