Get Your KitsFest On!

One-of-a-kind sports and healthy lifestyle festival

VANCOUVER, Aug. 17 /CNW/ - ranked it as one of the "Top 10 sexiest beaches in North America". Now as Canada's hottest summer spot, Kitsilano beach in Vancouver, B.C. is again home to KitsFest. ( href="">

KitsFest is quickly becoming known as the hip and healthy Vancouver summer festival. This 3-day event celebrates active lifestyles and healthy living via a variety of competitive and recreational sports activities.  This year, KitsFest is proud to feature a new sport sanctioned by the US Tennis Association (USTA) - Beach Tennis hosted by Tennis BC.

The KitsFest delivers free fun and entertainment for general public from all walks of life!  Families and kids can enjoy the "Kids Zone" which includes games, obstacle courses, even a "Baseline Bistro" hosting some of Kitsilano's favorite local eateries. KitsFest runs from 9AM-8PMdaily, August 20th-22nd at Kitsilano beach in Vancouver.


KitsFest is one of several very successful events that The Canada One Athletic Foundation (COF) hosts annually. ( KitsFest co-founder Julien Phipps notes, "KitsFest has actually been in the works for several years. It's rewarding knowing that the community and City have embraced it! As with our court donation, we look to challenge others to carry out similar efforts in their communities". The KitsFest concept was set in motion early in 2007 through COF executives Ron Putzi and Howard Kelsey (two of B.C.'s / Team Canada's basketball legends) generously donating a state of the art resurfacing of the famous Kits' beach basketball courts.

"KitsFest" is quickly becoming one of Vancouver's buzzwords as far as summer events go.  If you prefer a "buzz-tune" then check out a classic song by the O'Jays echoed on the website:

"People all over the world join hands", bring your family and friends, come out celebrate KitsFest 2010!
