Yesterday, the Calgary Chinese Merchants Association (CCMA) officially unveiled the new banners that will adorn the lampposts of Chinatown as part of the 12th Annual Chinatown Street Festival which will be starting on Saturday August 11th.

The CCMA stated, “The new artwork for the banners was created by Venezuela-born Chinese Canadian artist Henry Raul Yu. The artwork is meant to represent the diversity in Chinese culture, mixing in western illustration styles with traditional Chinese cultural aspects serving as a bridge to bring the East and West together.”

Check out the official Chinatown Street Festival webpage for the highlights and details of the six zones in this year’s multi-cultural event: Cultural, Sportif, Merchants, Food, Performance, and Hidden Gems.
