      The folks at Create Vancouver Society—the people behind the Vancouver Mural Festival—have announced the family-friendly Strathcona Street Party will return to East Van on June 23.

      Art, music, food trucks, and a craft beer garden by Vancouver Craft Beer Week will bring the intersection of 877 East Cordova Street and Campbell Street to life from noon to 8 p.m.

      Look for DJs by Chapel Sound, the Oasis Lounge by Public Disco, turntable lessons for kids by Table Tutors, and dance battles by the Vancouver Street Dance Festival. Live painting and interactive art will also accompany the unveiling of four new murals produced by VMF.

      Made In Strathcona, which is staging the 10 Blocks of Passion this July in the same neighbourhood, is partnering on the event. 10 Blocks of Passion begins this July featuring 10 new public art pieces inspired by local business owners and residents.

      Meanwhile, the street party will get you in the mood for the Vancouver Mural Festival August 6 to 11 in Mount Pleasant.
