Experience the Ancient Silk Road in Vancouver

The inaugural Silk Road Festival - proudly sponsored by CBC Vancouver - pays homage to the Silk Road in its goal to bridge cultures, engage communities and inspire discoveries.

July 6 & 7

The two millennia old Silk Road spans over 5,000 miles, and served as a trade route between China and the Mediterranean. It paved the way to cultural exchange and today's interconnected world.

The inaugural Silk Road Festival - proudly sponsored by CBC Vancouver - pays homage to this in its goal to bridge cultures, engage communities and inspire discoveries.
