Meinhardt takes great care with local delivery of their beautifully wrapped “open-style” gift boxes and the products are carefully chosen for their individuality and gourmet appeal. Whether you choose a standard box or a wooden crate, you’ll find your gift is both stylish and reflective of the quality of the products contained within.

Meinhardt’s Holiday Dinners are all made in-house with fresh, local ingredients. The family-style holiday dinner comes with nine dishes and is available in four different sizes, ranging from $24.99 to $204.99. A vegetarian main dish is available as an add-on with any order. Fully vegetarian meals are available upon request, please call our stores to place an order. Order online, by phone, or in person at least 48 hours in advance for pick-up from the South Granville (3002 Granville St, Vancouver) or Pacific Centre (609 Granville, Vancouver) locations.

Both locations are packed with holiday items that make for perfect stocking stuffers or gifts for foodies. Meinhardt Fine Foods carries one of Vancouver’s largest selections of authentic Italian Panettone, with many different flavours, shapes, and sizes at both locations.

Carousel Theatre for Young People presents the Canadian premiere of a classic tale with a musical twist with Stiles & Drewe’s The 3 Little Pigs, at Granville Island’s Waterfront Theatre until December 30, 2022.
Stiles & Drewe’s The 3 Little Pigs on Granville Island
A heartwarming tale about perseverance, bravery, and friendship, Stiles & Drewe’s The 3 Little Pigs is a charming and witty reimagining of the beloved children’s fable, with toe-tapping musical numbers, cheerful costumes, and dazzling puppetry.
I have a family 4 pack of tickets to give away, here’s how you can enter to win:
Dubbed “a fresh twist on a classic tale” by the Chicago Tribune, this story follows three little superstar piglets – Cha, Siu and Bao – who are encouraged by Mother Pig to leave the family pigsty and make their own way in the big wide world. The trio can’t agree on their ideal living arrangements and so they each build their own dream home – one out of straw, one of sticks, and one of bricks – before being foiled by the insatiable Big Bad Wolf. But just when the pigs think they’re safe, the Big Bad Wolf takes Mother Pig hostage to lure the piglets out of hiding. The swine siblings must band together to defeat their wolfish foe. Filled with fast-paced humour, the musical offers 45-minutes of non-stop laughter, heart and magic.
Composer George Stiles and Lyricist Anthony Drewe are a multi-award winning musical theatre duo, best known for their Olivier Award-winning Honk! as well as their original musical additions to the Broadway production of Mary Poppins. Together with The 3 Little Pigs, the pair have created a trilogy of musicals for younger audiences, including Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Three Billy Goats Gruff.
Directed by Chris Lam, the musical’s cast includes Angela Chu, Tanner Zerr, Frankie Cottrell, Kamyar Pazandeh, and Steffanie Davis. Musical Director is Arielle Ballance, Choreographer is Nicole Rose Bond, Set Designer is Ariel Slack, Lighting Designer is Itai Erdal, Costume Designer is Christopher David Gauthier, Puppet Creator and Coach is Stephanie Elgersma, Properties Fabricator is Monica Emme, and Sound Designer is Shawn Sorensen.
