With the fireworks taking place, Pride events just starting and the tons and tons of food fairs and night markets, it's impossible to keep track of all the events in Vancouver. Nobody likes forgetting or being unprepared for a huge event and the only thing worse than that is a bit of FOMO.
Luckily, we've got you covered. Although we couldn't knock down every event, we've got a different event or activity for every remaining day of August. After all, it's summer, it's time to Carpe Diem. What better way to do so than by having your own personal list to start carpin all those diems.
Pick your week and find your day!
