Vancouver’s summer events season is back!

June 21 2024 –

Get ready for an eventful summer outdoors in Vancouver! Annual favourites like the Jazz Festival, Pride, Celebration of Light, and Khatsalano Street Party, along with many others, are once again bringing the fun back to Vancouver this summer.

“Summer in Vancouver is simply unbeatable,” said Mayor Ken Sim. “Whether you’re chilling at the Jazz Festival, watching fireworks on the beach, or joining one of our many cultural celebrations, you can be part of what makes this city truly special and support the local economy. I’m excited to attend many of these festivities over the next couple of months and celebrate our vibrant city and its unique and diverse communities.”
