Bard on the Beach has been a highlight of summertime in Vancouver ever since its iconic red and white tents first set up in Vanier Park. This year’s lineup includes: A Midsummer Night’s Dream (June 11th to September 20th), The Tempest (June 12th to September 18th), Equivocation (July 2nd to September 19th), Cymbeline (July 4th to September 17th). There are also many special events at Bard on the Beach including the Bard-B-Q & Fireworks.

Bard on the Beach

Bard on the Beach Fireworks

Enjoy one of this season’s four plays followed by a delicious salmon barbecue and scrumptious desserts, complimentary tea and coffee; then enjoy a private view of the Honda Celebration of Light fireworks at Bard on the Beach.

New this year, the pre-fireworks Village activities will also include a swashbuckling sword fighting demonstration by Academie Duello and improv antics from the cast of Will Shakespeare’s ImprovMusical. A cash bar will be open all evening.

Also, Bard is pleased to announce a new format for the evening, based on a programming agreement with our friends at SHOREFest and BrandLive. The agreement specifies that music from SHOREFest, on the north shore of False Creek, will not be amplified during our play performances. Our 4:30pm start time will accommodate a full play performance followed by dinner, dessert, Village entertainment and a premium view of the fireworks.

Fireworks nights in Vancouver are July 26th (USA), July 30th (France), and August 2nd (Japan). Early booking is recommended for best seat selection (all seats are reserved). Order by phone (604) 739-0559 or 1-877-739-0559, or online, and follow @BardontheBeach on Twitter for season updates.
