If you’re looking to make some fun long weekend plans without planning a trip out of town, tune in. BC Place is transforming its Terry Fox Plaza into the largest outdoor patio in Vancouver, and it’s popping up during all three long weekends this summer!

With a capacity for over 1,000 guests, The Patio at BC Place marks the city’s largest licensed outdoor patio, bringing together the best local music, entertainment, and food and drinks. So consider this your sign to start planning some summer get-togethers!

Ready to kick things off? The Patio will transform into Vancouver’s “largest backyard patio” for the July long weekend, with a menu inspired by Indigenous cuisine, night markets, and summer BBQ. There will be a build-your-own Caesar Bar as well as innovative bites like Tempura Maple Gelato to indulge in!
