Things to do in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland this week! | Aug. 24 - 30

We're in the tail end of August, but that doesn't mean the events around town are coming to an end!


It's a fun but busy week of exciting activities and events for your and your family to safely participate in. With the pandemic taking away many of the summertime usuals, we hope to fill the void by letting you in on things happening in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.


Check out some fun upcoming activities for you, your friends, and your family to enjoy!


UBC BOTANICAL GARDEN



The UBC Botanical Garden is open for admission, ready for you to take in the views, capture, and learn a lot about Canada's oldest operating botanical garden. Established in 1916, the UBC Botanical Garden has an incredibly rich history worth the price of admission.


Safety measures are being put in place; no on-site tickets for purchase, and you must book your tickets for a specific time slot. Learn more and book your tickets here.


A POP-UP AT THE LOOKOUT



On August 27th, become a detective in your city and solve the murder mystery up at the Vancouver Lookout.


Every Bubble Gets:

  • a Vancouver Mysteries face mask for every player 

  • admission to the Lookout via private elevator ride 

  • contactless delivery of game and beverages

  • private table (physically distanced from other players)

  • 90 minutes to solve The Case of the Hotel Detective

STROLL FOR LIVER



Join the hundreds of Canadians that rally together annually that Stroll for Liver.


This campaign aims to continue its race to raise awareness and vital funds to propel life-changing research forward. However, as they've said, the world has changed, so this year's stroll is going to be a little bit different.


Register as an individual or a team, and stroll your own way in the comfort of your own backyard, neighbourhood, living room, or at a local park!

A TASTE OF THE PNE: DRIVE-THRU FAIR EXPERIENCE



It's more of an expedition than it is an exhibition!


The Fair at the PNE is changing things up this year; they're giving you a chance to experience all the fair's favourites from the comfort of your own vehicle!


Experience the President’s Choice® SuperDogs™ Tail-Gate Party, farm animals like pigs, cows and goats, and a reverse parade. You can stop by for the fair's favourite foods, too! Drive-thru for the perogies, the famous mini-donuts, and so much more!


For more details, check it out here!


We're super excited to announce that we will be visiting the Fair at the PNE's new drive-thru experience; stay tuned for a new video and article highlighting our time!
