  • Richmond, BC – A feast of international flavours will fill the bellies of crowds at the Richmond World Festival. The new free festival happens Saturday, September 5 in Richmond’s beautiful Minoru Park and is presented by Coast Capital Savings.

    Food, music, dance, sports and culture will all be part of the day’s fun, including headline performances by dynamic duo and festival circuit favourites Matt and Kim and Grammy winning Alex Cuba.

    “The Richmond World Festival emulates the true Canadian multicultural spirit and we are excited to be a part of this inaugural community event,” says Maureen Young, Acting Director, Community Leadership, Coast Capital Savings. “From the food to the entertainment to the vendors who will be on site, this is a perfect cross section of the Lower Mainland and specifically Richmond. What an amazing way to bring our community together – from young to old – and celebrate who we are.”
