Design Vancouver Festival is a citywide festival featuring exhibitions, lectures, networking events, walking tours, open studios and more, all hosted by Vancouver’s thriving design community. You may remember this event from before when it was known as Vancouver Design Week. We are going to carry on this beautiful community-driven festival. DV Festival brings together designers of all disciplines, design enthusiasts, and friends and patrons of the design community.

Our goal is to cultivate the public’s knowledge and appreciation of design, and our role in creating a supportive community.   [ Download DVF Info Deck ]
