Festivals & events in Vancouver Vancouver International Jazz Festival - © Tourism Vancouver/Dannielle Hayes
By Fiona Morrow

Many of Vancouver's established festivals are impressive international affairs, but locals are just as enthusiastic about celebrating their city's cultural diversity – and they do so at any given opportunity. Listed here are the city's major festivals and events, but it's always worth checking the local press, especially the Georgia Straight, to see what's going on when you arrive. Otherwise, check out www.tourismvancouver.com for the latest. Entries are annual unless otherwise stated.

Critic's choice

Vancouver International Jazz Festival

Where: various venues
When: late June
Tel & website: 604 872 5200/www.coastaljazz.ca
Some 40 venues around the city are involved in one of Vancouver's most impressive music festivals. Past line-ups featured diverse acts Sonny Rollins, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Kid Koala and Bebel Gilberto. A number of restaurants host gigs and there are free outdoor events – the opening street party in Gastown is a favourite. Jazz aficionados planning to attend a number of performances can invest in a festival pass and make savings of up to 45% of the ticket price.

Vancouver International Film Festival

Where: Vancity Theatre
When: late Sept-mid Oct
Website: www.viff.org
Vancouver's film fest is a friendly, largely celeb-free affair, championing diverse, often challenging fare. Expect eclectic international art cinema, political documentaries and independent films that would not otherwise reach this part of the world. It has proved a hit with local audiences – so much so that the festival was encouraged to establish the Vancouver International Film Centre and Vancity Theatre to present this kind of work year round.

Vancouver International Writers & Readers Festival

Where: Granville Island
When: mid Oct
Tel & website:
604 681 6330/www.writersfest.bc.ca
Literary giants share the stage with new writers in this hugely popular celebration of the written word. The week is made up of readings, poetry slams, workshops, the annual celebrity spelling bee and special events for children. Past guests have included Margaret Atwood, Julian Barnes, Alice Munro, Vikram Seth, JK Rowling and Peter Carey.

PuSh International Performing Arts Festival

Where: various venues, West Side
When: late Jan-early Feb
Tel & website: 604 605 8284/www.pushfestival.ca
Entering its sixth season in 2008, the PuSh Festival is the best current expression of Vancouver's theatrical ambitions. A smartly curated set of handpicked shows from Europe and across Canada mingle with new work by local hotshots, along with play readings, a cabaret and, on occasion, even a Kronos Quartet concert.

Vancouver Sun Run

Where: starting point W Georgia Street, Downtown
When: Apr
Tel & website: 604 689 9441/www.sunrun.com
Usually held on the third Sunday of April, this long-established 10km (six-mile) run – Canada's largest road race – starting on Georgia Street Downtown seems like it involves the whole city. Most participants (and there are about 54,000) are named in time order in the Vancouver Sun newspaper, the main sponsor, which also has four months of training schedules to get you in the mood.

Vancouver Marathon

Where: BC Place Stadium, 777 Pacific Boulevard, between Griffiths Way & Terry Fox Way, Downtown
When: early May
Tel & website: 604 872 2928/www.bmovanmarathon.ca
Fancy a whistlestop tour of Vancouver? The full 42km (26-mile) marathon usually starts at BC Place then heads off through False Creek and Gastown, round Stanley Park, over to Kitsilano and back again.

International Children's Festival

Where: Vanier Park, off Whyte Avenue, West Side
When: May
Tel & website: 604 708 5655/www.childrensfestival.ca
The children's festival attracts circus acts, musicians and theatre companies from around the world. Each year, two days are Francophone. Popular with school groups, but families can buy tickets. Check website for ticket information.

Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair

Where: 6050A-176th Street, Surrey
When: Victoria Day long weekend (third weekend in May)
Tel & website: 604 576 9461/www.cloverdalerodeo.com
An hour's drive from Downtown, this is the biggest rodeo west of the Calgary Stampede. The rodeo banned steer wrestling and calf roping after a calf broke a leg in the event in 2007 and had to be killed but remains subject to complaints from animal rights campaigners. The adjacent country fair has mechanical rides and the usual attractions.

Victoria Day Long Weekend

When: Mon on or before 24 May
The de facto start of summer sees the city's outdoor swimming pools and water parks open.

Summer

Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival

Where: Vanier Park, off Whyte Avenue, West Side
When: May-Sept
Tel & website: 604 737 625/www.bardonthebeach.org
Bard on the Beach used to be merely a popular success but these days it also commands respect. The festival programmes four shows in two tents (520 and 240 seats) in a beautiful park on English Bay, with the beach, water, city and mountains all as a backdrop, and sells at over 90% capacity throughout the four-month run. Arrive early to nab a good seat. On the bill for 2008: Twelfth Night and King Lear on the main stage, and The Tempest and Titus Andronicus in the smaller tent.

Dragon Boat Festival

Where: Creekside Park, East Vancouver
When: June (summer solstice)
Tel & website: 604 688 2382/www.adbf.com
A weekend of seriously competitive racing in traditional Chinese dragon boats. More then 5,000 international competitors hit the city to take part in an ancient Chinese way of celebrating the summer solstice. It's not all about boats: the park throngs with children's entertainers, activity tents, live music and food stalls.

Vancouver International Jazz Festival

Where: various venues
When: late June
Tel & website: 604 872 5200/www.coastaljazz.ca

Jazz aficionados planning to attend a number of performances can invest in a festival pass and make savings of up to 45% of the ticket price.

Canada Day

Where: Canada Place, Downtown
When: 1 July
Tel & website: 604 775 8025/www.canadaplace.ca/canadaday/
Those Vancouverites who own an island summerhouse make a mass exodus on Canada's birthday; most everyone else fires up the barbecue. Official celebrations take place in the Canada Place exhibition centre, which is filled with lumberjack shows, mechanical bucking broncos, bouncy castles and the like. Check local press for details of other events.

Dancing on the Edge

Where: various venues
When: early July
Tel & website: 604 689 0926/www.dancingontheedge.org
Two weeks of contemporary dance from international and local companies, featuring work by both established and emerging choreographers.

Vancouver Folk Music Festival

Where: Jericho Beach Park, West Side
When: July
Tel & website: 604 602 9798/www.thefestival.bc.ca
Marking its 31st year in 2008, the folk festival is the most direct route to Vancouver's hippie spirit. It even refuses sponsorship. The line-up tends to be eclectic but don't expect many big names. Even if you don't buy tickets to enter the open-air site, you should make the trip out to Jericho Beach, which, for the three days of the festival, turns into Woodstock-on-sea. Joss sticks, tie-dye and other hippie paraphernalia are all sold from makeshift stalls lining the edge of the beach, while families and stoners chill out on the sand listening to the music wafting over them.

Illuminares Lantern Procession

Where: Trout Lake, at Victoria Drive & E 15th Avenue, East Vancouver
When: late July
Tel & website: 604 879 8611/www.publicdreams.org
This free community project creates a magical sight on a summer's night, as hundreds of people gather to walk around Trout Lake carrying lit paper lanterns of all shapes, sizes and designs while music is piped through the trees. Don't attempt to drive here – the procession is in danger of becoming a victim of its own success. Lantern workshops take place earlier in the month.

Celebration of Light

Where: English Bay, West End & West Side
When: late July-early Aug
Website: www.celebration-of-light.com
The biggest international fireworks competition in the world takes place over four nights spread across a fortnight at the height of summer, when Canada vies with three other countries for bragging rights and practically the whole city turns up to watch. Roads are chaotic so you're advised to walk to your nearest vantage point. English Bay, Kitsilano Beach and Vanier Park have good views, but be sure to find a spot early. Kick-off time is 10pm, when the whole bay becomes illuminated by spectacular pyrotechnics fired from a barge.

Powell Street Festival

Where: Oppenheimer Park, E Cordova Street, between Dunlevy & Jackson Avenues, East Vancouver
When: early Aug
Tel & website: 604 739 9388/www.powellstreetfestival.com
The free annual celebration of Japanese Canadian culture has everything from dance to martial arts to traditional tea services – with plenty of theatre, music and art of both local and international origin.

Vancouver Pride Parade

Where: Beach Avenue & Denman Street, West End
When: early Aug long weekend
Tel & website: 604 687 0955/www.vancouverpride.ca
Pride is a major Vancouver event. In 2008, the Pride Society celebrates its 30th anniversary and is expecting up to 500,000 people to attend. Clubs and bars put on special events (see local press for details), and there are stalls, stages with live performances, tea dances and any number of beer gardens. The parade, which travels along Denman Street and Beach Avenue, boasts elaborate floats, drag queens done up to the nines and thousands of people in the mood for a party.

PNE (Pacific National Exhibition)

Where: E Hastings Street & Renfrew Street, East Vancouver
When: mid Aug-early Sept
Tel & website: 604 253 2311/www.pne.bc.ca
Dog shows, daredevil motorcyclists and duck races... the Pacific National Exhibition (the PNE, as everyone calls it) is a slightly hokey tradition in British Columbia geared towards all the family. Younger children especially love it, while truculent teenagers can let off steam at the next-door funfair, Playland. It can be reached by a (fairly long) direct bus ride from downtown but if you decide to drive, look out for local residents in the road waving cardboard signs – they want to rent you their parking spot for the day.

MusicFest Vancouver

Where: various venues
When: first 2wks Aug
Tel & website: 604 688 1152/www.festivalvancouver.bc.ca
Two weeks of all things orchestral, choral and operatic, as well as chamber music and even some jazz, MusicFest Vancouver is a relative newcomer on the scene. The focus is generally split between one composer and the music of a particular country, and includes both national and international performers.

Vancouver Wooden Boat Festival

Where: Granville Island, West Side
When: July/Aug
Tel & website: 604 688 9622/www.vcn.bc.ca/vwbs
Wooden boat enthusiasts show off their vessels, children build and sail toy boats and live performers play sea shanties. Plus there's rowing, sailing and canoeing races in Alder Bay.

Autumn

Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival

Where: Vanier Park, off Whyte Avenue, West Side
When: May-Sept
Tel & website: 604 737 625/www.bardonthebeach.org
Bard on the Beach used to be merely a popular success but these days it also commands respect. The festival programmes four shows in two tents (520 and 240 seats) in a beautiful park on English Bay, with the beach, water, city and mountains all as a backdrop, and sells at over 90% capacity throughout the four-month run. Arrive early to nab a good seat. On the bill for 2008: Twelfth Night and King Lear on the main stage, and The Tempest and Titus Andronicus in the smaller tent.

Global ComedyFest

Where: River Rock Casino, Yuk Yuk's & other downtown clubs
When: mid Sept
Tel & website: 604 685 0881/www.comedyfest.com
Vancouver's esteemed comedy festival attracts the cream of local talent, as well as international stars.

Vancouver International Fringe Festival

Where: Granville Island, West Side
When: Sept
Tel & website: 604 257 0350/www.vancouverfringe.com
The tourist mecca of Granville Island is about as far as you can get from 'fringe' Vancouver, but what this festival lost in grit it has made up for in audience numbers since moving from Commercial Drive some years back. The shows, programmed in island theatres, rehearsal spaces, tents and off-site works around the city, do strong business. The quality index would make for a line graph as jagged as the Coastal mountain range, but strong local performers, touring acts and showcase stars make for a fine festival. Advance tickets go on sale by mid August.

Vancouver International Film Festival

Where: Vancity Theatre
When: late Sept-mid Oct
Website: www.viff.org
Vancouver's film fest is a friendly, largely celeb-free affair, championing diverse, often challenging fare. Expect eclectic international art cinema, political documentaries and independent films that would not otherwise reach this part of the world. It has proved a hit with local audiences – so much so that the festival was encouraged to establish the Vancouver International Film Centre and Vancity Theatre to present this kind of work year round.

Vancouver International Writers & Readers Festival

Where: Granville Island
When: mid Oct
Tel & website:
604 681 6330/www.writersfest.bc.ca
Literary giants share the stage with new writers in this hugely popular celebration of the written word. The week is made up of readings, poetry slams, workshops, the annual celebrity spelling bee and special events for children. Past guests have included Margaret Atwood, Julian Barnes, Alice Munro, Vikram Seth, JK Rowling and Peter Carey.

Vancouver Snow Show

Where: BC Place, 765 Pacific Boulevard, between Griffiths Way & Terry Fox Way, Downtown
When: late Oct
Website: www.vancouversnowshow.com
Everything you need to hit the slopes under one roof, plus much, much more in this annual weekend trade exhibition. From heavily discounted new gear to second-hand and a ski and board swap-shop, there are bargains aplenty to be found. Film screenings, acrobatic shows and other entertainment are provided. Tickets are valid for both days.

Winter

Festival of Lights

Where: VanDusen Botanical Garden
When: Dec
Tel & website: 604 878 9274/www.vandusengarden.org
The always spectacular gardens become simply magical in the run-up to Christmas when 20,000 fairy lights are draped through the trees.

Polar Bear Swim

Where: English Bay Beach, West End
When: 2.30pm 1 Jan
Website: www.city.vancouver.bc.ca
Just ten hardy souls braved the waters of English Bay on New Year's Day, 1920 – the first ever Polar Bear Swim in Vancouver. Recent years have seen over one and a half thousand people register to take part, and a whole lot more find themselves overcome with the urge to strip off and take the plunge. If you're up for it, 2.30pm is when the charge takes place.

Annual Bald Eagle Count

Where: along Sea-to-Sky Highway, Squamish
When: early Jan
Tel & website:
604 898 3333/www.brackendaleartgallery.com
From December to February, thousands of bald eagles congregate to feast on dead or dying salmon in the Cheakamus Valley near Brackendale (about an hour's drive north of Vancouver). The highest concentration of birds is from mid December to mid January, with the annual count taking place the first Sunday in the new year. In 2007, the count was 1,757 eagles.

Chinese New Year

Where: various locations, Chinatown
When: Jan/Feb
Website: www.vancouverchinatown.ca
Held on the first Sunday of the Lunar New Year, these celebrations are understandably extensive given Vancouver's large Chinese population. The traditional parade in Chinatown is the big draw, but check local press for other events and don't forget to practise saying 'Gung hay fat choy' to wish people a prosperous New Year.

PuSh International Performing Arts Festival

Where: various venues, West Side
When: late Jan-early Feb
Tel & website: 604 605 8284/www.pushfestival.ca
Entering its sixth season in 2008, the PuSh Festival is the best current expression of Vancouver's theatrical ambitions.

I just got back from New York and I couldn't have had the amazing experience I had without Time Out New York. I couldn't wait to get back to my city and check out Time Out Vancouver to explore my hood with relish. I gotta say, I'm GREATLY disappointed. Time Out Vancouver is beyond Lame!!! Its NOT up to date, there is no "What's Happening Today sections" , there is no interesting provocative articles & reviews. Through your eyes, Vancouver is unsexy, unfun, and Generic!!! Vancouver is NOT New York, but it its a great exciting place to be. I gotta say, I alone could do a better job than this waste of my fun time in Vancouver. You guys are a disappointment and if I were an out of towner looking to come into Vancouver, I'd go elsewhere.
