The exact dates haven't been announced yet but it is usually from around the 22nd-1st of August in that range.

Hopefully they announce the dates soon!

It was initially canceled last year due to funding short falls, then a sponsor came in to save it. Not sure what is happening with it this year. They haven't updated their website yet for this year, but it usually runs Wed. and Sat nights for two weeks, wrapping up on the BC Day long weekend, which is the first weekend in August.

Watch this website for the updates:

Yes I head that yesterday on the news.... they have not said where they came up with the money. Wondering why the change of heart this year as opposed to last year when it was almost cancelled until somebody stepped in with a f ew hundred thousand.

Its a fantastic event but I'd rather see the money go to reviving the salmon festival ...or shut down a street or 2 in yaletown in the summer for vendors and performers....The fireworks are just a bang and gone.

The money is from corporate sponsors, so I guess they feel they get more "bang" for their buck at this event than others.
