DAVIE DAY STREET FESTIVAL

By WEBIA on August 23, 2010 - 2:58pm

Sep 11 2010 - 11:00am
Sep 11 2010 - 8:00pm

A carnival like atmosphere will see music, dance, food, circus, and heritage themed attractions highlighting the much anticipated Davie Day Street Festival. Four blocks of Davie Street from Burrard to Broughton Streets will be closed to vehicular traffic all day on Saturday, September 11th.

This exciting family day, named after former Premier Davie, will centre around our kick-off this year for the upcoming birthday - Vancouver 125. An impressive heritage zone will feature old-fashioned lollipops, a photographer taking turn-of-the-century pictures, The Sylvia Hotel, and lots to see and do including animals and blacksmith demonstrations in an authentic historical setting.

In the KidZone there will be circus demonstrations, and you can climb aboard an ambulance, or the fun SS Discovery. Our Doggy Zone will round out the attractions with a guest artist, Eric Ginsburg from New York City, who will create whimsical and waggish portraits of man's best friend.

For the second year running, the West End BIA will be hosting the outdoor “Dinner & a Movie” series at Ceperley Meadow (near Second Beach in Stanley Park) throughout July 2010. The free movies will start at dusk, but it is recommended to be there as early as possible to ensure a good spot in front of the giant inflatable screen.

This community event gives people of all ages the opportunity to enjoy their movie favorites in a natural setting under the twinkling canopy of the stars. It’s pure summer fun to lay on a blanket or sit in a comfy lawn chair and laugh, cheer or ‘oooh’ at the following family friendly movies:

Showing Details
Wednesday, July 7: Mamma Mia! (2008)
Wednesday, July 14: The Goonies
Thursday, July 22: Monsters vs. Aliens
Thursday, July 29: Karate Kid (Original)

Visitors are encouraged to dine-in or grab take-aways from one of the fantastic West End restaurants before the movie starts and should keep an eye out for dinner specials! The pleasant surroundings make a great open air picnic environment.

In the event of rain the events will likely be rescheduled for another night.

Annual Louis Riel Day Celebration

By andrewtempleton on October 21, 2008 - 2:23am

Nov 15 2008 - 7:30am
Nov 15 2008 - 9:30pm

Compaigni V’ni Dansi invites you to escape the relentless electioneering for one night and celebrate the life of a Canadian folk hero: Louis Riel.

The third annual Louis Riel Day Celebration will be held November 15, 2008 at the Roundhouse Community Centre in Vancouver. In addition to honouring Louis Riel – who inspired the rebirth of the Métis nation – the Festival is a chance to celebrate the breadth and vitality of contemporary Métis culture in Canada.

Building on the success of last year, this promises to be the biggest and best Celebration so far, featuring Juno-nominated and Aboriginal Music Award winner Wayne Lavallee; traditional story-telling from Winston Wuttunee, one of Canada’s premiere aboriginal performers; readings from the acclaimed Métis poet and writer Gregory Scofield; traditional powwow and Métis dance from rising star Madeleine McCallum and a special performance by Yvonne Chartrand of Marguerite, a solo piece inspired by the life of Louis Riel’s wife.

The evening also features the Louis Riel Métis Dancers, with special guest from Regina Jeanne Pelletier, and will conclude with the Red River Jig with everyone invited to join in.
