Today marks the first day in a 3-day event in TaiwanFest. It takes place on Granville Street in Downtown Vancouver, and also in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery.

This year, there is a new event called a Street Banquet, a traditional Taiwanese-style celebration where people from the neighbourhood gather and enjoy food, drink, and entertainment.
