Khatsahlano Street Party @ Saturday

This weekend we are going to the Khatsahlano Street Party together.

Khatsahlano is Vancouvers biggest Street Party, last year there were 118.000 people partying together. There are 50 bands performing on different stages, lots of food trucks and tons of merchants and vendors, so we’ll have a lot of fun there. And the best thing: it’s free.  

We are going to meet at the Esso Gas Station at 4th Ave (right at the intersection Burrard & 4th Ave where the festival starts) to go there all together and since its on the weekend you can use your monthly ticket or a zone 1 ticket to get there.

 

 

  • When: Saturday Jul. 12th at 12.30
  • Where: Esso Gas Station at Burrard & 4th Ave (1790 W 4th Ave)
  • Map

The festival is on Kitsilano’s West 4th Avenue, between Burrard and McDonald from 11.00 am to 9.00pm.

Depending on how long we want to stay there we can go back to Gastown afterwards and join the 1st annual Lords Show & Shine.

Hope to see many of you there to enjoy this sunny day together. In case you have problems to get to the meeting point, just give us a call and we help you finding it.

Highlights of the month June

July welcomed us with sunshine and Canada day, it’s going to be a beautiful month! However before we really start July lets see what we did in June and we are going to do in July.

We started June with a White Water Rafting / Camping trip to Chilliwack with the one and only Lee. He picked us op on Saturday afternoon and we drove down to Chilliwack. There we set up our tents and enjoyed the night. The next morning it was time to go rafting and after an amazing time on the water we came back to the camp for lunch and a last game of volleyball.

On the 21th of June we went to the Pint to watch the soccer game Germany against Ghana. We had a nice little brunch before the game started and afterwards most of us decided to enjoy the sun by either going to the beach or for a bike ride around Stanley Park.

We ended the month with a Pub&Club night where we also sadly had to say goodbye to our intern Daniela. We will miss here, but we are sure she will have a blast traveling and wish here all the best for the future.

The first of July will of course be celebrated with joining the parade and watching the fireworks. On the 12th of July we will relax at the Khatsahlano street party with music performances, little markets and food trucks. On the 20th of July we will to for a hike at the Grouse Grind and on the last weekend of July it is time for our monthly overnight trips. This time to Victoria.

As you just heard we have many fun activities planned for you in July, so make sure you check Facebook regular or come to our pub nights to get the newest information about the activities. (ps: our next pub night will be on the beach again!)

We hope you enjoyed our little video and let us know what your favorites were in June and what you would like to do while you are here!

In 1867 three colonies were united into to one country; Canada. We will meet at 6.30pm on West Pender and Broughton Street and will make our way to the Parade, afterwards we are going to try to find our self a spot to watch the fireworks at 10pm.

Sunday, 6th of July
You are going to love this activity we have planned for you! We, here at INTERNeX, are super excited for this special activity. We are going to North Van to play a round of paintball!! How excited are you eh!? The cost will be around $30 – 35 and we will leave Vancouver at Waterfront around 1pm. More information will be revealed soon!

Saturday, 12th of July
After the paintball activity it is time to relax an bit and therefore we will go to the Khatsahlano festival. Khatsahlano is a free festival which is held on 4th Ave from Burrad to Mcdonald street. You can enjoy the 50 music bands, over 100 vendor markets and there are more then enough food trucks to satisfy you tummy. More information will follow soon.

Sunday, 20th of July
The summer is arrived in Vancouver so it’s time to tackle the Grouse Grind. The Grouse Grind is a very popular hike up to Grouse Mountain on North Vancouver, but also very exhausting, however once you are on the top you have a beautiful view over Vancouver and you definitely deserved your dinner!

Saturday and Sunday, 26th and 27th of July
The last weekend of July is time for another overnight stay. This time we will take the ferry to Vancouver Island and enjoy an overnight at Victoria. Victoria is a beautiful city with many gardens, sights and activities. It is the perfect getaway spot after a hectic week at work!

We are already excited for July and we hope we will see you all at our events and of course our weekly pub nights (9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th of July)
