Win Bard on the Beach Bard-B-Q Fireworks Tickets

Comments 109 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Bard on the Beach is one of Canada’s largest not-for-profit, professional Shakespeare festivals and every summer it brings an outstanding caliber of performances to the waterfront in Vancouver. This season there’s a classic telling of Romeo and Juliet, Othello, and Pericles along with the Merry Wives of Windsor which set in Windsor, Ontario circa 1968.

Bard-B-Q Fireworks

One of Bard’s special event features is the Bard-B-Q Fireworks, when shows take place on the same night as the Honda Celebration of Light fireworks in English Bay.

Bard-B-Q Fireworks nights are July 23rd, July 27th, and July 30th. Tickets start at $95 and include a play (The Merry Wives of Windsor or Othello), a salmon barbecue dinner from Emelle’s Catering with all the fixings, and an entire evening of entertainment. Visit the PIXSTAR photobooth, take in the award-winning Dowco Triumph Street Pipe Band and more before enjoying a private view of the spectacular Celebration of Light fireworks.
