This Weekend in Vancouver

It’s the weekend. It’s summer. And you’re antsy for a good time, understandably so. We’ve done some searching, and here are our picks for some awesome events to check out this weekend in the beautiful city of Vancouver…

2011 Piknic Electronik Vancouver
Back by popular ‘belle-province’ demand (not-to-mention the demand of Vancouverites who are in the musical know), this DJ-fuelled event brings the party to the Park in a fantastique way. Friday, June 24th, starting at 5pm.

The Cheaper Show
If you’re tired of looking at blank walls in your minimalist condo, you’ll want to check out this year’s The Cheaper Show and pick up a painting or two to spruce up your living space. Now in its 10th year, The Cheaper Show allows guests to purchase up to three pieces of original art from carefully selected Canadian and international artists. With over 400 pieces available, each priced at $200, you’re sure to find something to hang on those boring walls. June 25th, 6pm to midnight.

Jacqueline Conoir Studio Sale
The ever-so-stylish Vancouver designer Jacqueline Conoir is hosting a splurge-worthy sale featuring some of her finest pieces that will have you sitting pretty this summer. On through June 25th.

8th Annual Hamptons White Party

Get thee to thy Hamptons…or in this case, a swanky spot by the sea, surrounded by picturesque gardens and tennis courts. Once again, this well-attended ‘kick-off’ to summer cocktailing fun and flirtations is sponsored by Hennessy Black. June 25th, 8pm.

21st Annual Greek Day Street Party
A popular must-see, taste and do event. Arguably one of the city’s longest-running and best original street parties, the 21st Annual Greek Day Street Party even comes complete with all the chaotic Mediterranean flavour you’d expect.
June 26th, 11am to 9pm.
