What to do on the weekend

Another weekend’s coming up, and if you didn’t had the chance to join us for our great trip to the rockies and still want to do something fun this weekend, here are a few ideas:


KitsFest is a sports and healthy living community festival. It takes places from fri – sun and its for everybody. You can either go there and register a team for basketball, volleyball etc., experience some great yoga classes or just watch and cheer for the teams of the tournaments.

Squamish Festival

Even though this whole weekend festival is located in Squamish, you don’t have to worry about how to get there. There will be a shuttle bus driving you from Vancouver to and from the Squamish Festival. The tickets for this event are kind of expensive, a day pass if $149 (+fees) and a weekend pass 325 (+fees) but there are acts like Eminem, Bruno Mars, Nas, Arctic Monkey and many many more. So check out their line-up and maybe you’ll decide it will be worth spending this money.

Vancouvers Largest Waterfight

On saturday Stanley park will host the 8th annual waterfight at 1.00pm at Lumberman’s Arch. Bring waterbaloons or a water gun and be part of the largest watertight of Vancouver.

Food Cart Fest

This festival takes places every week and this week on sunday there will again be more than 20 food trucks you can get some great food from. It’s only $2 entry and even for free if you bring a donation for the food bank. This week the Food Cart Festival will also be on saturday for the first time. On saturday you can find it at the Holland Park in Surrey and on sunday at the Olympic Village in Vancouver.


We hope you guys all have fun on you weekend and a great start in the new week!
