This event is taking place on the unceded, occupied, and stolen traditional territories of the Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Wautuh peoples.
The Cascadia Cup is an annual team poetry slam featuring poetry slam teams from the region to compete for regional bragging rights and warm up for national poetry slam team competitions.
This year’s squads include 2 time defending champions, The Vancouver Youth Slam plus the Vancouver Poetry Slam, Team Slamapalooza and UBC Slam.
The show is also a fundraiser to help offset travel costs for each of the teams. Come one out to support these poets before they head off to represent you back east for Voices of Today and CFSW. It should be an exciting and wild night with lots of great poems. Come see what the poets are doing.
