Victory Square Block Party is back for its thirteenth year on Sunday, September 3 from 2-9pm. Hosted annually by Music Waste Festival, CiTR 101.9FM and Discorder Magazine, the block party highlights local, independent music in a free end-of-summer celebration that also supports local non-profit and independent media organizations. Come on down for a day of music and fun and don’t forget to RVSP to the Facebook event.
The all-day outdoor event will also have one of a kind raffles by some of our favourite locals businesses and organizations, including Mint Records, Bard on the Beach, Coup Salon, Float House, Hartwell Therapy and Wellness, Light Organ Records and many more. Partial sponsorship and raffle proceeds will be donated to Megaphone Magazine, a street publication sold by homeless and low-income vendors in Vancouver and Victoria, and CiTR 101.9 FM/Discorder Magazine, Vancouver’s independent community and campus-based media organization. CiTR’s station personalities will be MCing the event, and it will be broadcast live on 101.9FM and available to stream on citr.ca.
