5 Hot Summer Events Happening in Vancouver This Week (June 17 – 23)
Dog person? Goat person? We've got you covered.
June 17, 2019
Treat your dog to front-row seats at a game of professional fetch (or as we humans call it, baseball). During the Dog Days of Summer, the Vancouver Canadians are welcoming two- and four-legged fans alike to the ballpark. Get ready to celebrate homers with your hound (Bunts with your bichon? Fly balls with your frenchie? We could go all day).
Ask an Artist
If you’re a sucker for behind-the-scenes content, you won’t want to miss Vancouver Film School’s new Storyteller Studio Live. This week the spotlight is on industry professionals Epigmenio Ibarra Almada and Veronica Velasco. The power couple pioneered the indie TV scene in Mexico and has been reshaping the film industry for 30 years – ask them anything at this intimate event.
June 21 – July 1
No matter how full your social calendar is this week, you should be able to squeeze in a show (or ten!) at the Vancouver International Jazz Fest. The fest is celebrating it’s 34th year with 1,800 artists, 300 performance, and 5 venues – we know you can find time for some toe-tapping. Artists include Herbie Hancock, Wu-Tang Clan, Five Alarm Funk, and Too Many Zoos – check out the website for a full festival line-up.
June 22 & 23
California might have us beat in terms of hotness (both weather and human-wise) but there’s one category where BC always takes the cake – strawberries. Fable Diner is celebrating the return of strawberry season with a baked creation all their own: strawberry shortbread with amaretto sabayon. The dessert is only available for two days (berry exclusive)!
Greatest Goat Yoga
We know you’re dying to get into the Guinness Book of World Records, but face it, that rubber band ball you’ve been keeping in your desk is never going to be nine thousand pounds. However, you can totally be a part of the world’s largest goat yoga class (yes, apparently there is a record for that). Participants in Maan Farms’ record-breaking goat yoga class will get one hour of goat yoga, a basket full of strawberries, a day pass to the Barnyard Adventureland, and the right to tell their grandchildren that they were an important part of goat yoga history.
