Dear Martial Arts Applicants,

We are very excited to be celebrating the 44th annual Powell Street Festival on Saturday, August 1st and Sunday, August 2nd, 2020!

If you are interested in participating in the 2020 festival, please fill out the following form by March 10th or the following business day. If you applied last year, please log in to your account and your content will appear in each field. However, it is important that you review and update each answer because the questions may have changed.

Please note: time-slots for the martial arts groups will be limited.  As with previous years, we will likely have only six time-slots for martial arts groups in the park. If we receive more than six applications, we will continue our rotating policy, which means the groups that do not get slots this year will have priority next year, and some of you may have to take a year off. Those of you who took a year off last year, will have priority this year. As always, preference is given to groups who have contributed to the Festival in the past. We hope you understand our attempt to be as representative of as many different types of performance as possible. All applicants will be notified in June 2020.

To help with the costs of presenting the Demo Area, organizations can sell lottery tickets (which also raises 20% commission for your organization). Please indicate your intention to sell lottery tickets in your application.

We also encourage you to join our volunteer set-up crew on Friday, July 31st, 2020. Your strength and agility as a martial arts practitioner would be a great asset to our tent and stage set up! Lunch is included. Our Volunteer Coordinator will reach out to you in July.

You will receive an email confirmation once you complete the form successfully. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 604.739.9388. Please note that we are no longer accepting faxed or hard copy application. Your continued support of the Festival is greatly appreciated!

Best wishes,
Emiko Morita
Executive Director
