Sumo Tournament

For many years now, the Vancouver Sumo Fun Club has been at the Powell Street Festival, educating and showing our Sumo to people who have an interest in learning about our culture. Do you have what it takes to be the Yokozuna (Grand Champion)? Festival visitors—men and women alike—are encouraged to take part in this exciting competition. To win, you must force your opponent out of the circle! But if you get forced out—or if any of your body parts other than the soles of your feet touch the dohyo (ring)—you lose! Pre-registration required. On Saturday, please sign up at the sumo food booth located on Jackson Avenue; on Sunday, sign-up near the Totem Pole on the south side of the park one hour before the tournament. More info ›
