Managed by the non-profit EuroFest BC Society, the first European Festival took place in 1998 at the Alliance Francaise in Vancouver to help promote and educate local residents about the diversity and richness of Europe’s cultural spectrum. Ten countries participated in the first event and presented some of the national customs, local traditions and original cuisine of Europe. At the 1999 event in Granville Island, ten new countries joined, doubling the participants up to twenty. In 2001, the Festival was held at the Scandinavian Community Centre in Burnaby for the first time, while 2012 the Festival decided to move to the spacious Swangard Stadium.
The Festival takes place at the corner of Kingsway and Boundary Road in Burnaby, and is also accessible via public transit with a stop at the Patterson Skytrain Station or the 019 Bus from Metrotown. The exact times and locations can be seen at: http://tripplanning.translink.ca/.
