(Community announcement by Capilano University)
Puppies, murals, live music and beer will all be a part of CapFest on Saturday, September 22, 2018.
Excitement is mounting for CapFest, Capilano University’s massive campus-wide party in celebration of its 50th anniversary. Admission is free and the event is open to all. The first 500 people to arrive by public transit or bicycle will receive a gift.
There will be five entertainment stages, live acts, food trucks and a family-friendly beer garden. Tour nine murals that are going up with the help of the Vancouver Mural Festival, see students in action in the Bosa Centre for Film and Animation and take in storytelling, dance performances and a DJ set at an Indigenous Festival. There will be an escape room, an alumni homecoming tent, activities for children and an experience fair, where you can play with puppies and get your face on the cover of a magazine.
Visitors can soak up jazz in the forest, refuel with fare from more than a dozen food trucks and take in high-energy main stage acts that include Five Alarm Funk, with the headlining act to be announced on September 10.
CapU opened in 1968 with 784 students and operated after hours at West Vancouver secondary school. Now the University offers more than 100 programs, including bachelor’s degrees in areas as diverse as film and animation, early childhood education and tourism management. Alumni have won Juno Awards and worked on an Oscar-winning animation team.
