about greek heritage month
The Hellenic Canadian Congress of BC (HCCBC) is proud to once again be host and organizer of one of Vancouver’s most anticipated summer street festival, Greek Heritage Month (GHM) 2022 and its grand finale Greek Day on Broadway, which will take place on Sunday, June 26. Our Board of Directors and a dedicated group of volunteers plan a variety of cultural and educational activities for this event including art displays, musical performances, cooking demonstrations, crafts, and literature/mythology events and the grand finale Greek Day on Broadway.
GHM is an important part of Vancouver history and has been operating for over 30 years. Greek Day on Broadway is an annual community street festival which spans multiple blocks throughout Vancouver's Kitsilano neighbourhood in the heart of Vancouver's Greektown.
GHM consists of a variety of cultural and educational activities over the month. Many of the activities focus on art exhibitions, musical performances, cooking demonstrations, crafts, literature, mythology and film. Attendees are encouraged to participate in workshops in traditional Greek dance, ceramics, pottery, art as well as the cooking demos showcasing the main elements of a healthy Mediterranean diet.
We sincerely hope you enjoy the 2022 celebrations of Greek Heritage Month. After two years of cancelled and modified events, we are back and ready to give you a true Greek experience. OPA!
