Granville Island’s Winteruption returns for the eighth year February 22nd through February 24th, 2013 bringing a festival of entertainment and culture to the isle famous for its theatres, art, and market. On top of the Vive Vendredi! celebration of all things Francophone, Coastal Jazz at Performance works all week long, and the Kids Zone, you’ll find Street Eats and Beats Under the Bridge.
Edible Canada (our favourite hyper-Canadian bistro and shop) is bringing Vancouver’s food and music cultures together under one bridge for two days of food, drink, and merriment.
Running February 22nd and February 23rd from 6:00pm to 12:00am each day, the festival will have beverages from Granville Island Brewery and local wineries along with food trucks and DJs. Tickets are available now online starting at $30 (plus fees and taxes) per night or for $25 each (plus fees and taxes) if you purchase a pack of ten tickets (all guests must arrive together for the group rate). A ticket includes six bites from food trucks and two drink tokens.
Edible Canada is located #212-1551 Johnston St (across from the Net Loft and kitty corner to the market) on Granville Island. Follow them on Twitter and Facebook for more event information.
