Vancouver Fringe Festival

September 4-14, 2014

Every year the Fringe delivers an eclectic mix of theatrical offerings
consisting of over 500 performances by more than 65 different groups over 11 days.


The Vancouver Fringe Festival is Vancouver's premier theatre festival, dedicated to its mission of providing "Theatre for Everyone". The 11-day Fringe Festival draws crowds of over 35,000 each year and brings together performers from local, national and international theatre companies in traditional and non-traditional venues. Book your accommodations and join the festival on and around Granville Island. Parking is very limited so alternative transportation is a must! Also close to the Cruise Ship Terminals.

Terry Fox Run

September 14, 2014

The iconic image of Terry running along long and lonely roads during the 143 days of his Marathon of Hope does not convey the full picture of that historic effort. If the photographer were to widen his lens, there would appear the tens, hundreds, even thousands of Canadians lining those very roads cheering Terry on and taking inspiration from his example.

Ambleside Park Salmon Festival

September 2014

AmblesideNow will celebrate the return of the salmon to the North Shore at the Coho Festival. The festival is held on the second Sunday after Labour Day each year. Several thousand people attend this event to take in exhibits in the sustainability zone, enjoy outdoor entertainment by the water in Ambleside Park, participate in children’s activities and enjoy the famous salmon barbecue (Wild Alaskan Salmon, which is in abundant supply). The festival is also a venue for Coho Kids to raise funds for salmonid programs in the classroom.

The popular Vancouver Film Festival offers challenging and original content.
