A one of a kind youth poetry event that kicks off Verses Festival of Words!
Hullabaloo is BC’s Youth Spoken Word Festival. Teams of youth poets aged 13 to 18 from across British Columbia come together to compete in slams, participate in workshops, witness world-class feature artists, and connect with peers!
This event is a scent-reduced space. To assist us in our goal of increased access, please be aware of our attempt to reduce the impact of personal scented products (perfumes, scented oils, etc) in our festival spaces.
