The most important event for the auto industry in British Columbia is returning for its 97th year as the best attended consumer show and automotive event in Western Canada! The Vancouver International Auto Show is gearing up for its best show yet returning to the Vancouver Convention Centre West on March 28- April 2!

 

Show favourites will once again be making a comeback this year, including the always-breathtaking exotics section. Luxury brands including Lamborghini, Ferrari, Rolls Royce, McLaren and Porsche will be showcased at the 2017 Show. Of course, the Auto Show isn’t just fun for adults. Parents can drop their children off at the Volkswagen Playcare Centre free of charge while they peruse the show floor—then pick them back up to show them the highlights. Or you can take them with you throughout the show and create an auto fan for life!

Sunset Beach Festival @ Sunset Beach Park | Vancouver | British Columbia | Canada

Celebrate Pride at the annual Sunset Beach Festival. This event brings together thousands of individuals in the LGBTQ2+ community and their allies for a day of fun-filled festivities. Enjoy the diverse entertainment lineup at the main stage, explore the Vendor Village, visit the Family Fun Zone and the brand new Community Zone, or dance the afternoon away to DJs spinning in the beer garden. Stay and take in the festival for the whole day, or pop by after watching the incredible parade.

The West End is incredibly busy on Pride Sunday; walk, take transit, or #RidetoPride and park your bike at our by-donation bike valet.

There are Express Passes available for the beer gardens. So if you’d like to skip the line to head right into the beer gardens, make sure you get your Express Pass!
