“We’ve seen an explosion in creativity across the Vancouver arts scene recently, so what better way to celebrate that community than with a free block party showcasing local music, art, food, and more,” said Monstercat’s head of events, Max Nied, in the release. “Our lineup is filled with hometown heroes from Whipped Cream on the Main Stage to Rumpus on the Westwood Stage, so attendees can expect some very special sets.”

The block party, which runs from 2-9 p.m., will be located at the Monstercat headquarters at 380 Railway St. in Vancouver, and will run stretch down Railway and Dunlevy Streets, according to the release.

The event will offer food trucks, a beer garden, street artists, an air-brushed tattoo station and a gaming zone.
