0

It’s always fun when a new month falls on a Monday. It’s as if old Father Temps was winking at us, inviting us to make the most of it. Well, we are taking his suggestion and filling the week with some really fun things to do in the city. Let’s take a look!

Here are the best things to do in Vancouver this week.

Watch a Canucks game

The Canucks have not one, but two home games this week! They will face the Rangers on Tuesday, then the Predators on Friday. Either way, you will have a great evening.

When: Tuesday November 2 and Friday November 5
Or: 800 Griffiths Road
Cost: $ 41 +

Try a new restaurant

After a few years of delighting diners on Commercial Drive, the delicious Thai restaurant Kin Kao is about to open its second location in Vancouver! This time around, they’re heading to the heart of Mount Pleasant. Check it out if you fancy a good meal this week.

When: Opening Thursday, November 4
Or: 317 Broadway Street

Witness the majesty of some eagles

Would you not know? A town just outside of Vancouver is a favorite haunt for thousands of eagles. Harrison Mills offers a variety of (free) walks that almost guarantee you’ll see bald eagles when you visit. It’s ironic that Vancouver is a better place to see bald eagles than, you know, the United States, but we’ll take it.

FlyOver Canada – The True Wild West

Destinations for this new FlyOver experience include Lake Tahoe, Zion National Park, the Las Vegas Strip, and most importantly, the Grand Canyon. Let’s face it, you won’t be able to see it from that vantage point unless you take a private plane across it. We don’t have the dough for this, so we think it’s a great alternative.

When: Opening Thursday, November 4
Or: 201 – 999 Place du Canada
Tickets: $ 23 +

Cultural exploration of the East

This iconic art festival turns 25 this month! Naturally, attendees go out of their way, offering virtual events, gallery tours, workshops and more. It’s that simple: if you love art, you’ll love the Eastside Culture Crawl.

When: Events throughout the month of November
Or: Places around Vancouver
Cost: To free!

DTES City Heart Festival

Back for its 18th edition, this festival highlights one of the most talked about communities in Canada. Filled to the brim with lectures, workshops, installations, readings and more, the Heart of the City Festival is a great opportunity to learn more about the DTES.

When: Until November 7
Or: Several locations
Cost: Varies according to the event (Free +)

Anthropology Museum

Our final pick this month is the Museum of Anthropology. Their next exhibition Sankofa: African roads, Canadian roots focuses on contemporary artists from, you guessed it, African countries and Canada. Besides the permanent exhibition and the breathtaking setting, it is worth the detour.

When: Opening Thursday, November 4
Or: 6393 NW Marine Drive
Cost: $ 15

Vancouver Museum

MOV also has something new to show! Boarder X, presented alongside the Winnipeg Art Gallery, makes connections between the use of public space for alternative sports and the history of exclusionary policies and treaties towards Indigenous peoples. One is arguably worse than the other, but it’s an interesting way to highlight the issues.

When: Open all week
Or: 1100 rue des Châtaignes
Cost: Varied

Imagine Picasso

Did you like the Imagine Van Gogh exhibition who came to Vancouver? Look no further than the recently launched Picasso image of the same people! Origami-inspired exhibits will showcase some of the iconic artist’s best works, in a truly unique setting.

When: Open all week
Or: Vancouver Convention Center – 1055 Canada Place
Cost: $ 34.99 +

Rio Theater

There is so much going on at the Rio this week that it’s hard to sum up! Discover a new film about skiing, watch the surrealist film A24 The green knight, or attend a rehearsal of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Just in case you missed it this weekend.

When: Events throughout the week
Or: 1660 East Broadway
Cost: Varies depending on the event

Alright, that’s what we have in mind this week! Hope you can start November on the right foot!
