“You’re gorgeous, baby, you’re sophisticated, you live well…Vancouver is Manhattan with mountains. It’s a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France and the Pacific Northwest. It’s the cool North American sibling.” - The New York Times


Can’t decide on what to do this long weekend?

Celebrate Victoria Day and the long weekend (May 19-21) with some of my recommendations:  

Take a look at Yaletown’s Engine 374

This free community event celebrates Canada’s 150th anniversary and marks the 130th anniversary of Engine 374 arriving in B.C. (It’s free!)

Location: Roundhouse Mews, 181 Roundhouse Mews

Date & Time: May 21, 12PM – 3PM


While you’re at it, also check out:

Vancouver Comic Arts Festival

It includes comics programming, comic creators from home and abroad, and art lessons for kids.

Location: Roundhouse Community Centre, 181 Roundhouse Mews

Date & Time: May 20 and May 21, 10AM – 5PM


Take advantage of the weather and head down to Lonsdale Quay (30 minutes from Yaletown)

Shipyards Night Market

Food, art, music, entertainment and shopping. Take a look at local items from artisans and makers, live music featuring talent from around B.C., a beer garden pouring local craft beer and 35 food trucks serving locally made food.
