CANADA DAY COOKOUT & Outdoor concert — Saturday, July 1
CELEBRATE CANADA’S 150th BIRTHDAY WITH GREAT FOOD, BEER, AND MUSIC
Saturday, July 1
YVR Food Fest in the Olympic Village (215 West 1st Ave)
A gigantic Austin-style outdoor party with bands, DJs, and, of course, amazing food, the Canada Day Cookout will be one of the city’s biggest celebrations. The event will feature some of the top bands + DJs in the city, while the culinary aspect will be based around the idea of pairing great tasting BBQ staples (everything from dogs and burgers to brisket and ribs) with great local craft beer.
The musical lineup includes Light Organ Records singer-songwriter Jessicka, Mint Records pop-punk artists Supermoon, dream pop group Jody Glenham and the Dreamers, new wave act Gang Signs, tropical indie pop band Leisure Club, and 10-piece afrobeat outfit Camaro 67. Providing music between sets will be local club favourites the Common People DJs.
