Things to do in Vancouver this Thanksgiving Long Weekend

The Ultimate in Safety, Service and Satisfaction

How will you celebrate Thanksgiving this year? Vancouver is beautiful in the fall and bustling with activity. Take this opportunity to enjoying yourself and spend precious time with friends and family having fun while making lasting memories.

Vancouver has a lot going on this time of year. Below is a sample of fun things you and your family can do on your long holiday weekend:


In celebration of Thanksgiving, the City of Vancouver is kicking off official skating season with free ice skating available at eight different skating rinks scattered across the city on Saturday, October 8 and Sunday, October 9. You can rent skates or bring your own.

VANCOUVER INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (VIFF), September 28 through October 13, 2017.

This film festival event has something for everyone with plenty of venues to choose from. Choose from comedy, action, drama, romance and more.


Catch a sneak preview on October 5th at the Royal Canadian Theatre Company of one of Sherlock Holmes' all-time greatest. While it is still a mystery, this version will make you giggle all the while staying on the script!

HARVEST HAUS - October 5th – 7th

If you are inclined to spend your weekend listening to live bands, drinking beer and munching on bratwurst while participating in lip-synching, beer drinking and ax throwing contests, this is the place you want to be.

HOCKEY - Check out a Canadian favorite! Two chances on October 7th:

Vancouver Canucks vs. Edmonton Oilers at Rogers Arena (7 pm)

Vancouver Giants vs. Tri-City Americans at Langley Events Centre (7 pm)


Last chance! This one will end October 14th. This comprehensive walking tour of Vancouver takes you to historic landmark buildings while filling you in on the illicit activities of mob bosses and dirty cops running the city! Learn our city's history while having fun!

FRIGHT NIGHT October 6-8, 13-15, 18-22, and 24-31.
