Comments 3

As summer winds down, September swings us back into festival season with and plenty of events to distract us from back-to-school and work blues. It’s also a busy time of year for our local farms, offering up seasonal ingredients and family fun. Check out a self-guided Circle Farm Tour or Fraser Valley farm to pick up the best of the season and to enjoy a corn maze or two.

Of course there’s the Vancouver Fringe Festival, the Vancouver Film Festival, and many more arts experiences to enjoy as well. Check out the full monthly list below and check back often as it’s updated daily. You can also send in your event any time for a free listing!

  1. We’d love to invite your readers to our Labour Day Fair on Monday, September 5. It’s going to be a great day of old-fashioned family fun, heritage games, entertainment and FREE carousel rides.

  2. Eric Kore says:

    Whitecaps game listed but no CFL BC Lions game on Sept.9th ?
    Dissapointing 🙁
