House of Vans Pop-Up Hits Toronto

Vans is pleased to announce that House of Vans will return to Toronto for a second consecutive year on March 30 – April 2.  The densely packed, four days of programming will include a live performance from acclaimed singer-songwriter, Mac DeMarco, a market showcasing various members of Toronto’s bourgeoning creative community, a thought-provoking art exhibition and a full-size replica of an iconic San Francisco skate spot, which are all free and open to the public.

“As one of the key cultural hubs in Canada we are excited to bring the House of Vans experience back to Toronto.’’ said Vans Canada General Manager, Jared Bevens. “We collaborated closely with local skaters, musicians and artists to bring to life four days dedicated to showcasing action sports, music, art & street culture. New interactive experiences like the Community Market provide a great opportunity to highlight and support the thriving creative scene here in Toronto that is a true representation of the ‘Off The Wall’ spirit Vans was founded on.”

Located at 99 Sudbury St., on the edge of Parkdale, House of Vans Toronto will kick off at 8pm on Thursday, March 30 with a live interview featuring Vans Skate Pro, Elijah Berle, hosted by Cephas Benson and Donovan Jones of The Bunt. A first for Toronto’s The Bunt, Elijah will be interviewed before an audience in a casual and intimate setting.  Attendance is open and will be streamed live on the official Vans Skate’s Instagram for those who can’t make it.

The Community Market at House of Vans Toronto will feature artists, designers and retailers from Toronto and Canada. Enthusiasts will have the chance to shop a curated environment showcasing a wide range of vendors from record stores, interior designers, underground skatewear brands, visual artists, artisanal jewelers, and even a stick n’ poke tattoo artist. 100% of sales profits will go to directly to the vendors.
