Vanier Park hosts 6th annual event on February 4th
This Saturday, people from across the lower mainland will venture to Vanier Park for an exciting day of cultural exploration. And for the first time in the event's history, there will be snow on the ground!
Presented by Port of Vancouver, this event offers people the chance to experience all of the park's attractions for just $5.00 per person.
The Vancouver Maritime Museum, Museum of Vancouver, H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, Vancouver Academy of Music, and City of Vancouver Archives will all be open, with performances from Bard on the Beach's Young Shakespeareans, VAM students, storytelling by Vancouver Public Library, and additional programming throughout.
