Hapa-palooza Fes­ti­val re­turns to Van­cou­ver

Vancouver Sun - - CITY -

Hapa-palooza Fes­ti­val, a fes­ti­val cel­e­brat­ing hapa and mixed her­itage cul­ture, is re­turn­ing to Van­cou­ver this month. The fes­ti­val fea­tures mu­sic, art, sto­ry­telling and dance over three days from Sept. 22 to 24 at var­i­ous venues through­out the city. “Ha­pa­palooza bridges worlds, gath­ers com­mu­nity and cel­e­brates di­verse an­ces­try and cul­tural her­itage,” said co-founder and jour­nal­ist Anna Ling Kaye. “It en­cour­ages peo­ple to share their sto­ries and be proud of their cul­tural makeup.” The word hapa is of Hawai­ian ori­gins and is used as a broad term to de­scribe peo­ple iden­ti­fy­ing as hav­ing a mixed her­itage. More in­for­ma­tion and a full list­ing of events can be found on­line at ha­pa­palooza.com.
