TaiwanFest 2012

TaiwanFest 2012

It is a beautiful sunny day for the first day in September, and we decide to swing by the third annual TaiwanFest held in Downtown Vancouver.

As we were here last year, we are eager to see what has changed. Clearly, food is still THE main attraction.

A lot more food stands, and the street banquet is more sizeable and more organized. No picture for that, as I don’t think it is polite to take photos of people enjoying the food.

Another gorgeous shot at Robson Square.

TaiwanFest 2011

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.

There are plenty of booths from various vendors, including the Tzu Chi Foundation.

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.

We decided to hit the food vendors first before the crowd set in.
