City of Bhangra Festival 2017

From June 11th to 17th, 2017

6 days, 2 cities, 350+ performers and tons of #BhangraLove!

Our festival events are unique, diverse and strategically held in different venues in Vancouver and Surrey. Our programs are developed by creating innovative and collaborative performances, always integrating bhangra with other art forms.

Welcome to City of Bhangra 2017!

Creativity, conversation, cutting edge art, and exciting events that celebrate Bhangra, the Punjabi folk arts, South Asian youth culture, connections and diversity - that's what's in store at City of Bhangra 2017.

We introduce film to the festival with the Reel Bhangra Short Film Fest - and screen a world premiere!

Downtown Bhangra moves to Central Surrey for the first time, with a day full of music, dance, and celebration.

And, buoyed by the success of last year’s GENDER narrative, the 2017 festival continues to create space in our community for those whose identity isn't easily categorized.  With the theme of Intersections, we have programming that features world-class events and that helps us all recognize both diversity and interconnectedness in culture and community.  We are not simply female/male, queer/ straight, cis-gendered/ trans-gendered - but a complex combination of these. We invite you to check out Bhangra: WE.

We invite the community, as well as the public at large, to visit the festival and be inspired, informed, challenged, excited, and entertained.
