    The First Annual Breakout Festival

    If you are in the area shopping for houses on the weekend of June 9th and 10th, don’t miss out on the first annual Breakout Festival at PNE Amphitheatre.  Billed as Vancouver’s first outdoor music festival, Breakout will feature some of the hottest names in hip-hop and R&B.  While the music promises to be excellent, the promoters of Breakout will be pulling out all the stops to make sure that this festival becomes a favorite tradition for years to come.

    Car Free Days!

    Some of our favorite annual events in Vancouver are the city’s Car Free Days.  On June 16th and 17th (over Father’s Day weekend), Denman Street, Main Street, and Kitsilano host these volunteer-run festivals that bring the community together.  As the name indicates, streets are closed down in the name of fun and games – as food vendors, live music, and games and entertainment replace the hustle and bustle of downtown Vancouver.   Whether you are a local looking for a new home in the city or someone hoping to move here in the near future, don’t miss the Car Free Day’s of this June!

    The City of Bhangra Festival

    Vancouver is a very diverse city and relishes in the opportunities to showcase and celebrate its diversity.  A great opportunity to do so this summer is from June 14th – 17th when the City of Bhangra Festival takes the town by storm.  This festival celebrates Punjabi culture, music, and tradition in venues across Vancouver and is an amazing way to get exposed to East Indian dance, culture, and food without having to travel halfway across the world.
