Win Passes for Edible Canada House

Comments 87 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Aside from our athletes giving it their all in competition, the most exciting part of the Vancouver 2010 Games for me was exploring the various pavilions, houses, and entertainment zones that popped up around the city. From February 14th to February 16th, 2014, you can relive that excitement with the 2nd annual Under the Bridge Festival that will include events and festivities at Edible Canada House.

Edible Canada House

Inspired by the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, this year’s festival, Edible Canada House, is expected to be the biggest Olympic party in Vancouver. For those wanting to relive the glory of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games, this is your chance.

Tucked underneath the Granville Street Bridge in the heart of Granville Island, this Canadian-themed winter festival is once again part of CMHC’s famous Winterruption Festival, running February 14–16. Along with live music (including both DJs and bands), Edible Canada House will showcase a number of live and pre-recorded Olympic events provided by event sponsor, Preston Mobility. Three giant projection screens will allow guests to party the night away while cheering on the nation’s top athletes. In true Edible Canada fashion, the theme will be quintessential Canadian.

Savoury Chef will be hosting multiple food stations showcasing classic Canadian fare such as bison chili, Alberta beef brisket & maple flapjacks to name a few — perfect late night snacks! There will also be other comfort food items provided by Edible Canada, such as cheesy perogies. Granville Island Brewing will be supplying the craft beer and many other local wines and spirits will be flowing over the course of the weekend, including Edible’s famous “Garnish Your Own” Caesar bar.

Edible Canada House will run the entire weekend of February 14-16 and into early mornings. Families with young ones are also warmly welcomed, as there will also be a separate play area with face painting courtesy of Granville Island Toy Company.

Tickets are available online and general admission includes:

  • Two Drink Tickets (beer, wine, Caesar, or non-alcoholic beverage)
  • One Food Station Ticket
  • Unlimited Televised Winter Olympic Events (view schedule)
  • Local live bands & DJs
  • Entertainment for kids, including a play area and face painting

Edible Canada House will be open Friday, February 14 from 6:00pm to 1:00am; Saturday, February 15 from 11:00am to 1:00am; and Sunday, February 16 from 11:00am to Midnight.

    My favourite thing was watching the opening ceremonies from Toronto, and following it on Twitter – which enriched the viewing experience, and allowed me to “hang” with all my friends in real time online. Especially witty were all the comments about the technical difficulties. I was literally laughing out loud.

    The Canada vs U.S. final hockey match! I was working at one of the VANOC bus dispatch locations and most of the bus drivers were American so we had a pretty even crowd of Canadians and Americans. Canada was leading the match so we were all pretty excited until the U.S. team scored within less than 30 seconds before the game would have been over. Of course, the atmosphere in the room did a complete switch-a-roo and we were pretty much at the edge of our seats during the overtime. It was unbelievable when Canada won!!

  69. PatrickMonday, February 10th, 2014 — 9:53am PST
