8 Things To Do This Weekend In Vancouver, February 7 To 9

This weekend is going to be epic!

Cheers to the weekend Vancouver. Friday is basically moments away, which means it’s time to start figuring out your weekend plans. As always, there are some rad things going on and we have you covered. We came up with some amazing things to do this weekend Vancouver and you should definitely know about them.

Take a step back and recognize that you finally made it through another work week. 

From meetings to emails, you did it all and now it is time to start winding down in preparation for two glorious days off. 

In order to get you thinking about your weekend plans and distract you from work, we came up with a list of things to do this weekend in Vancouver and we think you'll like what you see.

All of these activities are within the city limits and some are even free which means you don't have to worry about breaking the bank. 

From art events to warehouse sales and shopping, we've covered all the bases with you in mind. 

While snow took over our city for most of the day on Tuesday, we can take a sigh of relief as Environment Canada is calling for sunshine and a mix of rain this weekend. 

It’s not great but it’s better than a snowstorm. 

Now get on your group chat and start planning your weekend with your friends. You know you want to.
