Big news, food lovers! Today, Dine Out Vancouver officially released the lineup of participating restaurants, and hoo boy, did they throw everything but the kitchen sink at it. There are over 300 restaurants around the city joining in, special events to attend, and even a few tours on table! Overwhelmed? So were we, but we’re ready to give you the lowdown.

Since you’ll have over two weeks to enjoy Dine Out in Vancouver, our first bit of advice is to plan accordingly. With meals ranging from $20-$59, you’ll be able to enjoy everything from a quick (but delicious) lunch during the work week to a full-blown treat yourself dinner with friends on the weekend. And seriously, practically every cuisine under the sun will be available.

For those looking for something a little more adventurous, we have to recommend checking out all the incredible dinners, tours, and other experiences that will be going on as well. Here, our top pick is a no-brainer, as Salmon ‘n’ Bannock will be hosting some incredible Indigenous chefs for one-off dinners near the end of the festival. These always sell out, so get your tickets quick!

And while the emphasis has been on dine in during Dine Out Vancouver during years past, don’t forget that takeout options are also available for this year. Because honestly, sometimes it’s nice to just grab a big old dinner from a staple spot and curl up on the couch, instead of making the effort to go out one night. Trust us- we’ll be picking this option more than once while its on.

So folks, there’s a general overview of what to expect from this massive food festival. Stay tuned though, because we’ll be rounding up some of our absolutely must-try options closer to it kicking off.
