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.
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.
