Official celebrations and observances
City Council and staff recognize and value the contributions of the diverse communities that make Vancouver one of the most livable cities in the world. We also observe internationally recognized days and significant events in our history.
We recognize these official celebrations and observances through public ceremonies involving the mayor, councillors, and members of the community, or through acknowledgement by the City with a proclamation or recognition during a Council meeting. Annual events could also include cultural celebrations with speakers, entertainment, and when appropriate, a reception.
The official celebrations and observances listed below have been approved by City Council.
