Summer may be slipping away, but there’s still a lot to look forward to. As we head into Fall, Vancouver is abuzz with festivals around just about everything! From international movies to Halloween, there is something for almost everyone this season. Check out some of these fun festivals around the Lower Mainland.
Vancouver International Film Festival
You know it’s Fall when the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) is in town! This annual festival is a great way to check out some thought-provoking films from all across the globe. With more than 300 films from over 70 countries presented, the hardest part is selecting what to see! Check out the program details at viff.org
Vancouver Halloween Parade
While technically not a festival, the third annual Halloween Parade brings enough celebration and flair to count as one! The parade takes place downtown on the 16 of October at 11 am and is the place to be for an unforgettable sight. You should also check out the world’s largest Cosplay stage. Bring the kids, as it’s a family friendly event!
BC Beer Awards & Festival
BC is craft beer haven and we have a festival to prove it! The BC Beer Awards & Festival celebrates the best locally-brewed craft beer and takes place on October 15 from 4 – 9 pm. Basically what happens is breweries from around BC submit their frothy entries to judges who rank them. Festival-goers can sample the very best of craft beers from all across the province. The fun doesn’t stop there – the event also has an after party. For more details and tickets, visit bcbeerawards.com
