What to do on the weekend?

This week is just about to come to an end. A few more hours, then it’s finally time to put all your work aside. And this means that for the upcoming twwo days, you can do whatever you want. But what? Here are some suggestions from my side that cover the area of music, food and sports.

Here’s what’s going on in the music world in Vancouver: the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival is taking place for the 32nd time this weekend! It’s kicking off today – June 22nd – and lasts until July 1st. There are over 150 free concerts that you can visit. In downtown, there will be three outdoor stages this Saturday and Sunday. There’s the Georgia stage, the Robson stage and the Sound of Youth stage. Music is being played from 12pm – 9pm. There are food trucks around the locations as well. Sounds like some good times are ahead.

If your absolute favorite fruit is strawberry, better listen up! This Saturday, the Strawberry Festival is taking place! This festival is located in the heart of downtown Vancouver. To be exact, at the Barclay Heritage Square. There will be musical performances, a bouncy castle, horse drawn carriage rides and of course, strawberry shortcakes. Admission is free and the fun is for young and old from 1pm – 4pm.

Ever heard of the sport Dragon Boat Racing? No? It’s a sport where 20 people are paddling in one boat in a competitive race against others. Sounds interesting? Then you should check out the Concord Pacific Dragon Boat Festival. It is one of the largest community festivals in Vancouver. Three days long, there are races (more than 200 teams are participating), food, music and other activities that can be discovered by you. The free event is located at the Concord Pacific Place, Creekside Park and the waters of False Creek.

And if we’re already talking about sports… Don’t miss out on the following FIFA World Cup games:
Saturday:
Belgium – Tunisia                    5am
Korea Republic – Mexico        8am
Germany – Sweden                 11am

Sunday:
England – Panama                   5am
Japan – Senegal                       8am
Poland – Colombia                  11am

Have a great weekend and I hope to see many of you at our Swedish Midsommar event!
