There’s a little something for everyone in Vancouver. Like the outdoors? It’s got you covered. Like delicious food, wine, and beer? Vancouver’s got it in abundance. And what about those people who like cultural events? Well then, you better believe Vancouver has you covered. Indeed, just take a look at what’s coming up in the early part of March. There’ll be three events, all dedicated to a different cultural expression. Check out all the info below, and begin look forward to your trip.
The Growing Literary Festival will be taking place at various venues across the city from March 8 - 17. Dedicated to feminist literature, the event will feature more than thirty panels and readings from internationally acclaimed authors. If you’ve been working on your own novel, take it down - there’ll be two days of manuscript consultation, too.
Do you prefer your literature to be a little, well, shorter? How about just three lines? If so, make sure you’re checking out the Haiku Invitational, which will begin on March 1 and run all the way through to June 1. This year’s theme is harmony, so you can expect plenty of short pockets of wisdom.
Chances are, you never got to see the legend that is Nat King Cole live. But fear not, because his music lives on. Jazz guitarist John Pizzarelli will be paying tribute as part of the ‘John Pizzarelli: A Century of Nat 'King' Cole’ event, which will be taking place at the Orpheum Theatre on March 1 and 2.
Round off your cultural day by staying at the best hotel in Vancouver.
