If you happen to hear the sounds of a piano being played in an unlikely location, don’t be confused – Pianos on the Street has returned for its eighth season in Vancouver!

This year, there are more than 30 pianos to be discovered around the Lower Mainland in Vancouver, North Vancouver, Richmond and beyond. Each piano is painted with a unique and colourful design that is eye-catching and perfect for photographs!
