Father’s Day falls on Sunday, June 17 and there are lots of activities taking place in and around Vancouver. Luckily, it falls on the same weekend as the Main street car-free day, the Denman street car-free day and the Surrey Greek food festival.
In addition, the BC Highland Games and Scottish Festival are also taking place over the weekend.
The Denman street free car will take place from noon till 7-pm on Father’s Day on Denman street located between Davie and Robson street. This fashionable neighborhood will be filled with market vendors, pedestrians, musicians and street entertainers. Of course, there will be many stalls selling food.
The Main street car-free day will take place from midday until 7 pm on Sunday, June 18. The event will be held on Main Street from East Broadway to 30th Ave. Again it is an annual event that attracts thousands of locals.
In addition, other car-free day’s parties on a smaller scale will be held in areas of Kitsilano.
One of the highlights for Father’s day is the Surrey Greek food festival. This mega cultural event involves music, the performing arts and some of the best tasting Greek cuisine. The event will run all day on Sunday. While admission is free, you will have to buy your own food. The Surrey Greek food festival will take place at the Helen Greek Orthodox church and Saints Constantine in Surrey. The Greek festival is all about food and plays a major role in raising funds for the Greek community. Volunteers will be preparing and serving meals. The festival is a large outdoor event and each year attracts hundreds of people.
The BC Highland games and Scottish festival will take place at Coquitlam’s Percy Perry Stadium on Saturday, June 16. This big event will feature dancing, music and many Celtic sporting competitions. Besides Scots in their kilt, there will also be Bhangra music, a huge beer garden and activities for children. This year the festival will have a cultural corner that will feature demonstrations, mobile entertainers, and hands-on activities.
Everyone who attends the Scottish festival must have a ticket which can be bought online.
On Saturday, June 16 will be the Lynn valley day event in North Vancouver. This community event will feature a parade, pancake breakfast and a free outdoor movie in the evening. The show is the ‘field of dreams’ starring Kevin Costner. There will be many children’s activities. If you plan to go, show up early as thousands of people turn up each year.
