Welcome to the end of the weekend, Vancouver! We’ve got a pretty rainy week ahead, but so much fun to get up to that we’re not bothered by it. Plus, you know what they say- April showers bring May flowers, and if that’s the tradeoff, then we’re cruising.

Here are the 10 best things to do in Vancouver this week.

Dua Lipa

Arguably the biggest concert of April also happens on the first day! Dua Lipa is heading to Vancouver to kick off the month, with Caroline Polachek and Lolo Zouai opening up for her.

When: Friday, April 1st
Where: 800 Griffiths Way

Vancouver Canucks

After over a week of no home games, the Canucks return to the city! They’ll be facing off against the St. Louis blues, as the regular season winds down and the playoff race heats up.

When: Wednesday, March 30th
Where: 800 Griffiths Way
Cost: $45.50+

Vancouver Cherry Blossom Fest 2022

While the first major event doesn’t happen until the weekend, this serves as a good reminder to check out all the amazing cherry blossoms around the city! That way, you’ll be completely aesthetically aligned with the vibe.

When: Starts April 1st
Where: All around Vancouver
Cost: Varies per event

Greenheart TreeWalk

Speaking of outdoor options, a pretty fun one returns to the UBC Botanical Garden this week. The walk is some 310 metres, offering a canopy level view of your surrounding. We’re not joking about the canopy bit, as the TreeWalk soars over 20m into the sky at some points!

When: Opens April Ast

Cost: $10 for garden admission, tickets for the TreeWalk TBD

Capture Photography Festival

First launched back in 2013, Capture has since become the largest photography festival in Western Canada. Both local and international artists get featured in a variety of ways, from free exhibitions to billboard takeovers around the city. We say make the most of it.

When: Starts April 1st
Where: All around Vancouver
Cost: Varies

Cirque du Soleil

After a 2-year hiatus, Cirque du Soleil has returned to Vancouver! What’s more, it brought a ‘reinvented’ version of one of its most popular shows- Alegria. Head on down to the Big Top so see what it’s all about.

In the same vein, a fun dance/theatre hybrid show comes to Vancouver this week. Head to the Vancouver Playhouse to check out this dark comedy/farce based on a novel by the Ukraine-born Nikolai Gogol, who is best known for lampooning Russian politics and bureaucracy.
