Vancouver's 10-year Olympic anniversary

Vancouver's 10-year Olympic anniversary festival to be held at Jack Poole Plaza

For the first time in about a decade, the Ilanaaq Inukshuk logo and the brilliant blue and green branding look of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games will return to the public realm. And it is all part of the plans to mark the 10-year anniversary of the successful Games.

The upcoming events are organized by the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) to relive the iconic moments and magic that captured the hearts of Vancouverites and Canadians from coast to coast, as well as to celebrate the lasting positive legacies to the Vancouver and Whistler areas.

The COC first announced last fall it will be organizing festivities in Vancouver in February 2020, and there is now a location and a few early details for the party.

On Saturday, February 22, a free public fan festival will be held at Jack Poole Plaza, the site of the Olympic Cauldron and part of Vancouver Convention Centre’s West Building, which was the International Broadcast Centre during the Games.

Festival programming will include athlete meet and greets, stage performances, sports demonstrations, food and beverage, the relighting of the Olympic Cauldron, and other family-friendly activities.

The COC says it will announce additional festival details closer to the event.

As well, on the same day, a separately ticketed gala will be held inside the convention centre, featuring over 60 Olympians and Paralympians.

The unique Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic logos and branding have been reactivated for the first time in years to help promote the festival and gala.

The 21st Olympic Winter Games were held between February 12 and 28 of 2010.

10-year Vancouver 2010 Olympic Anniversary Festival

When: Saturday, February 22, 2020
Time: 11 am to 6 pm
Where: Jack Poole Plaza — Vancouver Convention Centre West (1055 Canada Place, Vancouver)
Tickets: Free
