Five Things to Do for the Labour Day Weekend in Vancouver

August 30, 2018

Don’t fret if you don’t have plans for the Labour Day long weekend because there’s plenty going on around the city. Whether you’re in the mood for catching a nighttime concert at the PNE or venturing outside Vancouver to snap a pic of the biggest Sunflower Festival in BC, we’ve rounded up the best stuff going on around the city. Scroll through to see our top picks and start making your long weekend plans!





It wouldn’t be summer without a visit to the PNE. Whether you go for the rides, food or music, there’s a little something for everyone. If you’re there for the tunes, check out the PNE’s concert series with performers like Jann Arden and Cyndi Lauper performing Labour Day Weekend. If you’re more of a foodie, be adventurous and try the talked-about Milkshake Burger or the Fair-Size Meatball.




Stroll through over five acres of peak-season sunflowers at the Chilliwack Sunflower Festival and we promise you’ll come out with at least one Instagram-worthy snap. Ride through the fields on the by-donation train or play one of the many outdoor lawn games taking place. After all that you’ll probably be hungry, so be sure to check out the local food trucks on site. It’s worth the drive, we promise.


Shipyards Night Market



Make sure you have an empty stomach before you visit the Night Market in North Vancouver. Located at the foot of Lonsdale Quay, with stunning views overlooking the ocean, this Friday evening event is home to a big line up of the city’s best food trucks, local vendors and live entertainment.


Farmer’s Market



Grab your cute straw tote and hit up one of the many farmers markets around Vancouver. From Kitsilano to Mt. Pleasant, there’s no shortage of markets for you to shop local and stock up on fresh produce, baked goods, cheeses and more.


Le Burger Week



Every year, several restaurants in Vancouver participate in Le Burger Week, a competition to find the best burger creation in the city. Stop by a few (or all) of the participating restaurants, like Fable Diner or Bells & Whistles, to try out their masterpieces. Don’t forget to cast your vote for the best burger!
