When the Celebration of Light fireworks schedule collides with Bard on the Beach there’s no reason to miss one or the other. Two of the most-loved summertime activities in Vancouver combine at Vanier Park as Bard on the Beach presents its special “Bard-B-Q” event. On July 30th, August 3rd, and August 6th you can enjoy Shakespeare under the tents, a salmon barbecue during an extended intermission, and following the production you’ll move to a private seating area for the fireworks in English Bay.
This event always sells out and is a joint fundraiser for Bard on the Beach and the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre (a $25 tax receipt is issued for your ticket purchase). This season Bard on the Beach presents As You Like It and The Merchant of Venice under the main tent.
If you would like to enjoy this one-of-a-kind event on a simmering summer evening by the water, I have a pair of tickets to give away. The winner and a guest will receive tickets for the August 3rd event and the performance of As You Like It. This also includes dessert and coffee after the show and front row seats for the fireworks. Total value is $210.
