What’s Going On

Looking to snap out of holiday mode? Why not start the New Year off with a splash by taking part in the 93rd Annual Polar Bear Swim. Join hundreds of adventurous participants as they welcome the New Year by diving into the ice cold waters of English Bay and shake off the year that has passed!

If getting wet isn’t your cup of tea, you can always hop into a cab and head over to one of the many concert and show venues that are taking place in Vancouver.  Check out Vancouver’s historic Orpheum Theatre to catch a breathtaking performance from the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra or stop by the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on January 17th enjoy a live performance by Canada’s own Barenaked Ladies.

Didn’t get enough to eat over the holidays? Loosen up your belts and nose-dive into Vancouver’s diverse food culture by taking part in the 2014 Dine Out Vancouver Festival. Experience set menus at some of Vancouver’s best restaurants for pocket friendly prices or take part in any of the unique events Dine Out has organized.
