VCBF umbrella

The Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival is delighted to tell you first that we’re bringing back the Umbrella Dance 2013 with the awesome Shiamak Vancouver Dance Team. The new limited edition PoP Art umbrellas, designed by notable local artist, Anthony Redpath are already here and ready to bring some cherry cheer to this weather.

Visit to pre-order your umbrellas and sign up for the World Umbrella Dance rehearsals. This is a special offer only for this month to pick up the 2013 umbrella for Christmas.

Share this beautiful public dance performance experience and the World Umbrella Dance program rehearsal series with some of the fun loving people on your Christmas Shopping List – or buy the umbrella separately and pick them up at the easily accessible VanDusen Garden Shop weekdays only 10am to 3pm – free 15 minute parking at the roundabout entrance off Oak street.

The 2013 Umbrella Dance will take place Saturday April 13, 2013 on the Vancouver Art Gallery Plaza to Shiamak’s new release, “Shabop” with live taiko drumming! Sign up for rehearsals starting February 26 and meet a world of new friends while getting your workout !

Wishing you a Very Merry Cherry Christmas and thanks for your support!
