Last month I discovered the Busker Festival by accident – I was out and about downtown Vancouver that Sunday for a totally different reason. I mentioned to someone that my biggest beef with Vancouver is that I always seem to find out about events that I would have liked to have attended if only I knew about them before rather than after the fact. She recommended the Vancity Buzz website as a place to find out what is happening (it is now bookmarked and I have since gone to a couple of events listed on their webpages). Pretty much the whole of Granville Street was blocked off. This is one of the vendor stalls found in the 800 block between Robson St. and Smithe.
