4. Celebrating the arts, culture and history of the Downtown Eastside, the 13th annual Heart of the City Festival runs until Nov. 6. This year’s theme, Living on Shared Territory, “pays tribute to the Downtown Eastside’s founding peoples, cultures and diverse neighbourhoods, as we live, learn and create together on unceded Coast Salish territories under the long shadow of our colonial past and present.” For a list of events, go to heartofthecityfestival.com for full details.
