5 Exciting Things to do in Vancouver This Week (September 2 – 8)

Green Feast

September 5 to 18

Hulk out over vegetable-forward dishes at one of Wildebeest’s Farmer’s Harvest Dinners. This extra-green family-style tasting experience is only available for the next couple of weeks. It shines a spotlight on plants with dishes like cucumber aperitif, Charentais melon, and braised bison brisket with desert king figs, Japanese eggplant and wild boar pancetta (Hey, we never said it was vegan).

When: Thursday, September 5 – Wednesday, September 18
Where: Wildebeest
Cost: From $60
More Info: wildebeest.ca


Fresh Fringe

September 5 to 15

The Vancouver Fringe Festival is celebrating a 34th year of the weirdest, wackiest, and wildest theatre productions ourcity has to offer – there are over 700 performances total! We’re particularly excited to see Perv Hunters (a female-led sketch comedy about perv-hunting buddy cops) written by Stephanie Mills and Those Who Can’t (a diverse show following a principal’s struggle to find a substitute teacher for a particularly rambunctious class) written by Jill Lockley.                                                                                 

When: Thursday, September 5 – Sunday, September 15
Where: Various venues
Cost: From $9

Swipe to the Right

September 5 to 7

Digital meets dance in @giselle, a tech-driven reinvention of a classic ballet. Audiences can see a unique narrative brought to life by professional ballet dancers from American Ballet Theatre, The National Ballet of Canada, and the Pennsylvania Ballet. The show connects the original Reimagining Giselle with the digital era – and the visual effect/pirouette combo totally deserves a superlike.

When: Thursday, September 5 – Saturday, September 7:30 p.m.
Where: Vancouver Playhouse
Cost: From $35
More Info: eventbrite.com


Give a Ruck

September 7

If you love rugby or love an excuse to drink beer and shout at strangers, Canada vs USA sounds like the perfect way to spend your Sunday night. This is our national team’s last match in Canada before traveling to Japan for the 2019 Rugby World Cup (read: your last chance to jump on the bandwagon).

When: Sunday, September 7, 8:30 p.m.
Where: BC Place
Cost: From $20
More Info: rugby.ca


Far Fast Food

September 8

Sadly, the nearest In-N-Out Burger is 890 km outside of the home zone – not that we’re counting. Given the iconic American burger chain’s scarcity around these parts, it’s not a surprise that In-N-Out’s annual pop-up at the Langley Good Times Cruise-In has yielded hour-long lineups in the past. Car enthusiast or not, get in the fast lane to avoid a cheeseburger-crazed queue.

When: Saturday, September 8, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Where: Fraser Highway & 268 Street
Cost: Free entry
