The weekend is just around the corner, and so is your freedom. As always, we are here with a list of 6 things to do in Vancouver this weekend. Now is the perfect time to take a break from work and start planning what you'll do with your time off. 

This time of year is great because now that we are done with holiday and New Year's Eve parties, we can focus on a multitude of different events. 

This weekend, there are tons of fun things going on in and around Vancouver. Whether you are looking for a relaxing creative night or want to sing your heart out at karaoke, you'll get to do it all on this extra cold and snowy January weekend.

To make your life easier, we did a round-up of the coolest things to do in Vancouver this weekend.

Be mindful, not all of the events are right in Vancouver. Some are in surrounding areas, but if you’re searching for a good time, it's worth the trek.
