What’s Going on in Vancouver this July

July is the month all Vancouverites wait in year long anticipation for.

We endure the day to day grind of showers, fog (and occasionaly snow) so we can enjoy the outdoors during the summer and show off our beautiful city to out of towners.

So whether your a local or a tourist, there are plenty of cool things going on.

If your in town for just a few days, I would recommend checking out Tourism Vancouver’s Near Perfect 48 Hour Itinerary which will cover most of the outdoor hot spots in the city. If you interested in digging a bit deeper, I’d check out Vancouver extraordinaire, Miss 604’s, 10 Hidden Gems in Vancouver.

Either way, Vancouver is always busy during the summer and there’s always something going on, no matter what your into.

So here are a few events taking place this July:
