8 Things To Do this weekend in Van (March 15-17)
We’re not going to lie to you, it seems as though this weekend is pretty much completely about St. Patrick’s Day. So apologies in advance if you don’t like it, but we’re just working with what we’ve got here.
Here are our top 8 things to do this weekend.
Who is Marc Emery? Never heard of him. But we definitely know who Cheech and Chong are. The iconic duo will be hosting a concert at the Hard Rock Casino. Heads up- both of them are pretty smart, so expect a few zingers during the show.
When: Friday, March 15 at 8 PM
Where: Hard Rock Casino
Tickets: Around $101.25 with tax, get them here
This is your last chance to yell ‘Free Bird’ at the band that actually made the song. Is that an opportunity you want to pass up? We’re on the fence because apparently lead singer Johnny Van Zant brought out a Confederate flag near the end of the show in Edmonton. Not a good look, buddy.
When: Friday, March 15 at 7:30 PM
Where: Abbotsford Centre
Tickets: $85 with taxes and up, get them here
This one-man show at the Havana Theatre offers insight into the life of 19-year-old Cory Thibert. Described as beautifully crafted and engaging, this show swept awards at Fringe Festivals across the country and was lauded by critics.
When: Friday, March 15 at 10 PM
Where: Havana Theatre
Tickets: $12, get them here
Choreographer Marie Chouinard has decided to tackle Hieronymus Bosch’s crazy triptych ‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’. The write up is pretty wordy, but whatever, we would be stoked to see a bunch of painted naked dancers try and recreate that madhouse.
When: Friday, March 15 and Saturday, March 16, 8 PM
Where: Vancouver Playhouse Theatre
Tickets: $80ish? We didn’t check every section, get them here
Heck yeah, we’re going to put a Vancouver Warriors game in here. It’s a fun and fast-paced sport that should be more popular than it is. Pro tip- head to the Bud Zone for a $20 ticket that gets you turf level and a free beer.
When: Saturday, March 16 at 7 PM
Where: Rogers Arena
Tickets: $20-$50 depending on where you sit, check out the map here
If you haven’t already figured it out, we have an affinity for flea markets. Sue us about is, they’re fun. Anyways, the 21st Century Flea Market is this weekend, and we think you should go have a look-see.
When: Sunday, March 17, 10AM-3PM
Where: Croatian Cultural Centre
Cost: $5 for General Admission
It’s St. Patrick’s Day this Sunday, and the city is going to be crawling in green. We put together a little guide for you here. Hint- our top choice is the last one on the list.

Where: Venues throughout the city
Cost: Your dignity if you’re not safe
