Welcome to the end of the weekend, Vancouver! We hope you’ve had some fun out there, in spite of the not-so-great weather. Either way, we’re here to help you get excited about the things to do this week. And luckily, there’s a great variety to check out. So let’s do it!

Here are 10 things to do around Vancouver this week.

Get your Vaccine Card

We know, most of you have already gotten your BC Vaccine Card by now. But, just in case you missed out, this should be at the top of your to-do list. The provincial government has set up an easy-to-access website to get your card, and with the new measures taking effect tomorrow, this is a must for just about anyone.

Grab a Negroni

Negroni Week kicks off tomorrow as well! This international festival gives you the perfect excuse to explore some of Vancouver’s best restaurants and bars, and all for a good cause! Each participating restaurant has picked their own charity to support, so you can’t really go wrong here.

Le Burger Week

As one food fest begins, another is ending. You’ve only got a few days left to enjoy some specially created burgers for Le Burger Week, which, you guessed it, is also for a charitable cause! Our advice? Grab a burger first, then wash it down with a negroni afterwards.

Neighbourhood Patio

If we’ve got nice days then we need to make the most of them, and this is a great option.

Swing by after work, or head down with a couple of friends.

Vancouver Fringe Fest

Theatre is more than just Shakespeare. It can be much, much, MUCH, weirder, and more interesting. With this year’s Fringe Fest starting up, there is a chance to see the wide breadth of what theatre can be. One-person shows, comedy acts, huge productions galore, and more await you. So, there is tons to check out around the city.
