Out and About: Things to Do in Vancouver this Summer

Canada Day 2012 Vancouver, BC

The days are long and much warmer than usual. We are lucky to live in a city that provides lots of low-cost or free events to participate in every summer. Here’s our list of rejuvenating, inspiring, and most importantly, fun activities to do this summer in Vancouver, BC.

Visit a Farmers Market

Kitsilano Farmers Market - Tomato Festival

The quantity and quality of Vancouver’s farmers markets continues to grow. Not only can you find fresh produce and goods from local farmers, you can browse through the creations of local artisans, grab lunch from a food truck and let musicians set the soundtrack to your afternoon.

Vancouver International Jazz Festival

Vancouver Jazz Festival 2012

June 18th – July 1st, 2015

Every year, Vancouver plays host to both world-renowned and up and coming musicians to celebrate jazz music with locals and tourists. This year, the Marquee Series features artists such as Erykah Baduh and Buddy Guy. These concerts cost money, but many city-wide free shows are also offered. For a list of all the happenings, click here.

Go to the Beach

Heisholt Lake

It may seem like an obvious idea in Vancouver, but it’s not one to be overlooked! There are so many incredible, often overlooked, beaches that are not too far away. Perhaps you could treat yourself to a mini-vacation and explore one just outside of the city!

Do you have any summer time activities that leave you rejuvenated? We’d love to hear from you!
